Teddy bear

This was one of my favorite experiments! After several hours of work and in spite of errors and imperfections, the bear you have in your hand looks so cute that you forget of all those broken threads and needles and of all that mess of the patterns...

I remember that this time I broke the original needle of my sewing machine... and when I went looking for another one, I found out that there exist different kinds for different fabric thicknesses... so, if you are embarking on this venture, I recommend to avoid normal needles (number 12-14) and rather go for a 16 one, as you will sometimes find yourself sewing together 3 or 4 layers of fabric at a time.
By the way, I used the same fabric of the sheep pillow, which is synthetic and soft to the touch.

Here you can download the pattern and aaall the instructions, step by step, to create the bear:

In  addition to the color of the bear, I changed one more thing: instead of the set of animal eyes, I used a pair of flat black buttons.

I bet that now you'd like to make one by yourself =)
