I know you know that I do my best to follow up on things I have said I would do. In that vein, today’s post is the finished teddy bear from the post before last.
The size of this bear is the size that I made frequently a few years ago. It is a bit more challenging these days to make one 12 inches. I think it’s mostly stuffing the head that works on me.
Yet when I get past that bit, some parts are easier than the smaller ones. The seams aren’t as tiny and the options on what kinds of trims I can use are greater.
What I learned is that it reminded me a little of having children. You soon forget the difficulties. In spite of the extra effort it takes, this teddy has convinced me that I might need to make another rather soon,
if only to satisfy my creative inclinations. In fact, maybe I’ll just toss the bear making plan I had laid out and pilfer through my “larger bear mohair” and do another.
Did you just read that I had a plan laid out? Okay, let’s go with that. Yeah, I had a plan. That’s right. Now I’m changing it. I like to live dangerously.
