People who know me well know I like to explore the world of teddy-bear making.....try to find out different results with differents fabrics and patterns and more and get confrontations with mistakes! I learn from my mistakes, that's OK!
This time I use a green felted open sparse mohair and a new pattern. It looks like the pattern from some bears of my bearshouse but it isn't!
|the first steps; I stitched the dart backwards|
|at this point I use to think: will this ever become a bear-head???? Phew!|
|I always check, check and double-check if the stuffing has been added equal by turning the piece over and over again and keep it in front of a mirror (has something to do with your brains I learned one day)(it works!)|
|joint added and opening closed|
|aha...! tiny eyes, very tiny indeed! I love it! and a bigger eye for the nose.....and a smile! Must do some scissor-sculpting....later!|
|I made the seam between the paw and the arm round so the paw will bend inside. Also I made a "seam" with the white thread to keep the seam in place while stuffing; it will be removed afterwards.|
Please come back soon to find out more!
