After making my Pumpkin Patch Bear I had just enough orange yarn to crochet something small. I came up with a mini pumpkin bear! I’m going to use mine as a festive little pin for my backpack. I think these would be so cute as a hair clip. Unfortunately, I’m not that adventurous with my hair accessories. You can make these little bears into anything your heart desires!
If you want to make a bigger, huggable version of this pin, you can find my original Pumpkin Patch Bear pattern HERE.

The Pumpkin Patch Bear Pin reminds me of bear macaron art. If my baking skills were better I would definitely make this little guy in macaron form! Maybe I’ll experiment with making some crochet macarons in the future. Let me know what you think!
