new amigurumi pattern: bearyBear & bffBunny

I was looking through my yarn stash and came across Mode Dea Tweedle Dee and Lion Homespund, both yarns are 5 ply textured yarns, therefore making them into amigurumis would require simpler shapes, back to basic I go:

bearyBear is with semi movable legs and arms in a sitting position; bffBunny is in a permanently standing position; both are soft and cudly *O*. The pattern is one and the same for both bear and bunny, positions are inter-changeable, you can custom make your own bear or bunny in a sitting or standing position, with or without muzzle, add felt pad or not, all up to you; pattern works with all bulky weight yarns.

amigurumi tips # 2 - stuffing nose or any small pieces

to stuff smaller pieces of amigurumis such as nose or tail, first stuff lightly, pin piece in place, needle yarn 2/3 of way (leave a bit of opening), use the back of a crochet hook to push stuffing into the cavity, shape firmly, and finish sewing.....
