trying and trying

and not really getting on good :(
i "think" i got a nice back paw now, but the leg is to short.

the body seems to be to skinny
or the head to big
the neck is to long

i am frustrated
i am really not good in pattern making :(


  1. Don't give up. I make, and then I adjust for the next time. It take me many tries and many bears to make one just right. As a matter of fact I have never made one just right. I am still adjusting. It never ends.

  2. Been there! If you could have seen some of my works-in-progress you'd laugh yourself silly. Take your time ~ it will come. I promise!!!

  3. Soll es ein eher realistisch proportionierter Bär werden? Das wäre natürlich eine besondere Herausforderung.
    Ich freue mich in jedem Fall schon auf Bilder von den ersten Erfolgen (wobei Misserfolge auch immer wieder interessant und lehrreich sind). Also bloß nicht aufgeben!
