Big Pants and the Tardis

Meet Mr. Big Pants. I know that these bears are s'posed to be kinda skinny, but I had a little problem with guage. A lot of us do, in the pants department. So he's got a big bum. Me too. And he's still pretty cute. Me too.

We had a KAL/CAL  (that's Knit-a-long/Crochet-a-long) in my Fiberworks group to benefit The Mother Bear Project. So I got this little guy going.
 And this is Colorama Mama. She's crocheted. She's my first real all-crochet project. And she's almost done.

She's for the same KAL/CAL. Another fiber artist was having trouble with the pattern (the feet are kinda weird) so I figured I'd give it a go. I'm not saying Colorama is perfect but she's pretty decent for a beginner.
And Tiny wants a Tardis hat, after seeing lots of 'em at Comic Con.  (She's such a Dr. Who fan!) I couldn't find a crochet pattern for a tardis, unless people are wearing a tissue box cover on their heads... hmm... So this one's knitted. It's flying, too. Which I guess is appropriate for a time machine.
