This last Christmas I decided to try something new, making stuffed animals for my younger kids. This first teddy bear I made was somewhat difficult because the pattern did not offer good instructions at all. I used this How Joyful pattern, which is free. I have sewn for a long time, and I have made lots of different things and followed lots of different patterns, but this was the first time making a stuffed animal & I could not for the life of me figure out what I did wrong with the feet. They are funky looking and usually this would drive me so crazy that I would take it apart & fix it, but for now it's staying with some weird feet.
Despite his imperfections Caden loved his new teddy bear when he opened it on Christmas morning.
