Yesterday i started to work on a new bear.
I started off with the paper work, overworking the pattern of Phillip, i changed the head, made it slightly larger, a bit longer from the side, and widened the gusset.
Then i worked on the body a bit, shortened the neck and the front paws got a little change, made them a tiny bit more square then so round on the toe part.
I also made the arms and legs a tiny bit wider at shoulders and hips, the last time the space for the discs was very thigh.
Then i got me some lovely faux fur from my closet and cut the pieces.
What do you think, doesn’t it look just sooo cuddly already ? :D
I also cut the pieces for the paws and soles
and then i did my running stitch all around the sewing lines.
and because the fur is stretching a bit (more then i like) i tried the first time to cover head and paws with diluted clue.
Today it’s really hard and no more stretching. But when i roll it between my hands, it gets softer again, and for sure it starts to get stretchy again too …
Well i will see how it works out when it is all done.
I guess today i will spend all day cutting the hair from the seam allowance and tack the seam allowance from the paw pads inside.
See you again tomorrow :)
