A Teddy for Kids


here is the finished test pattern for the children's teddy.

He is so really huggable, a fat and cosy little fellow :)





An other week passed


and i finished the grey traditional teddy .. and really don’t like him.

i called him Theodor, and he found a loving mommy already, which makes me happy, because teddy's should be loved :)


i also got an commission work, a teddy for a 5 year old.
we choose Australian micro plush in dark golden colour.

i tested with a rather stretchy white plush the pattern for this bear.

was my first time i did a popper scissor sculpting, and after a loooong break a embroidered nose again, but the result is not so bad :D

the actual teddy will have child save joints and eyes though.


AND i got my felting wool :D
so many shades of brown and grey :)

the colours seem to be a bit brighter then they are … all is a tiny bit darker in real.

The 2 bags off white are just that, off white merino, 1 of this bags i will bleach  - i need snow white wool for felting … and it is almost impossible to buy this here.
