A note of warning - this pattern can be rather difficult due to the tiny bear toes. If you are making a small bear, I highly recommend embroidering the toes with thread instead of cutting them out of felt. Really small felt bits are not easy to cut, and they are even less easy to attach! As you can see in the pictures of the brown bear, I had a bit of a hard time with the toes myself.
Personally, I think it would be a lot of fun to make a cushion or wall hanging with each member of the family represented as a bear, from the big Papa Bear holding a fishing rod, to the littlest sibling bear wearing a hockey jersey.
