4 hours today


Last night was a sleepless one again, but i didn’t use it to work on my bear, was to tired for it :(

That is the reason why i was sleeping long today, and didn’t work so long on the little one.

I did the preparations for the sewing of the last parts yesterday already, so today i “just” had to sew the arms, and the food pads, this took me a few minutes less then 2 hours.

You can see, i make even spaced markings on the paw pads and the legs, so i can easily pin them in place and sew without taking further attention about sewing right :)




The next step is to cut off corner, cut into angles and around curves.
As it was just the 4 parts it went father fast, just half an hour.



Then the turning of the pieces, i do it quite brutal with a plies



Then go in the inside around the seams, so they are all really apart, and give the pieces a good brushing and shaking. This is really fast, takes just 15 minutes


Notice how the final footpad is smaller then the one from the pattern.
I then draw a quick outline from footpad, length of the leg, the arm and the back and head shape.

Then i draw quite a bit smaller then this shapes the line which i take as pattern for the wirering and the spine.



This took me an other hour.

But today it is late, and i am tired and don’t work any more tonight … see you tomorrow with covering the wires.
