adorable !! i enjoyed your blog this morning


You are very generous. I love your patterns and buy them and knit playmates for my granddaughter. Now we can hang them on the tree!


These bears are just so darn cute. I made them as finger puppets as I was on a deadline and just could not get the limbs done. The recipients thought they were adorable.

Thanks for a great idea!


These are so cute! I swore I wasn't knitting for anyone for Christmas, but I think I need to now.
Thanks for sharing your adorable pattern!


Those bears are the sweetest! Thanks for sharing!


These are so cute!!


they are soooo cute!!!
Thanks for sharing Pattern!


When I saw your name I couldn't believe it. My sister-in-laws name is Julie Williams too, although she is not a knitter. These are so cute. I am stopping everything else today to make some of these for Christmas presents. I love them. Thanks for sharing.



Those are just the cutest things. But even a tutorial from you wont help ME make them. LOL I sure wish I could though. I love them!!


You're making me want to get back to knitting - these are lovely! I have left you an award on my blog. Wishing you and your's a wonderful Christmas!


I love your blog and all your knitted items. Do you mind if I add you to my blog list on my blog?I love the cupcake.

Julie - your designs are exquisite and so generous of you to share the patterns. I am going to show my 8 year old daughter - she will flip. I would love to put some pics of your work on my site, talking about your blog, and also invite you to be a featured talented in my Women Who Do What They Love series. Please let me know. Warmest bunny wishes, Tania McCartney

A friend urged me to move these projects to the head of my list. I'm so glad I did! I made a treeful of bears--some brown and some white. I used ribbon floss for the hangers for a delicate look. I made some small changes to the face embroidery, doing the embroidery after the head was stuffed. Pinching the stuffing a bit added definition to the eyes and nose. The instructions for the bears (and the stockings) are so thorough--a fact I appreciate after spending so many years writing sewing and smocking instructions for Creative Needle magazine! Thanks for sharing these; I've enjoyed making such well-designed ornaments.


So nice and easy! Thanks for an idea!

Thank you so much for this pattern - I haven't knit the teddy bears yet, but I did use the pattern as a base for making a tiny Yoda (from Star Wars) and he turned out great! His recipient is very pleased with him!



I'm learning to knit just so I can make these for next Christmas. Thank you.

Incredible ! It is very cute Christmas tree bears. Thank you for tutorial. I know bit knitting. ON the other hand my mum is trained in it. I will surely try it with help of my mother.


Julie, these are absolutely gorgeous and the perfect way to use up tiny balls of left over sock yarn. I'd love to post a link to this post on my own blog and use the first photo ... would that be OK with you ?

Your ideas are so precious! I really appreciate the detail you give, even down to the size of the needles. My church group would get a real kick out of doing these for a service project. Have you written anything more recent on Christmas tree decorating ideas? I I recently wrote about some unique ideas for Christmas wreaths you may find humorous:

Keep up the good work!



I just love theese bears. I hope it's ok if I borrow one photo of theese lovely bears and link to the pattern from my blog (www.siddisliv.com).


merci pour ce modèle que je trouve adorable, je vais en tricoter cette année pour noël et les offrir à mes invités

Artificial Christmas Trees

It's a Japanese craze that's based on anime, the cartoons with big heads and wide eyes.You can make ornaments, pocket pals,just use smaller yarn or thread and a smaller crochet hook!I am looking for a knitted christmas tree skirt pattern?


I made these bears.....they are very easy, although might seem difficult at first! They are very cute! I made one in pink to put on a gift for a new bay!


Very very cute ^^! Thank you so much for the pattern and tutorial ^^!!
