{caden's teddy bear}

Photobucket
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.

Hi there :)

I'm searching for a less complicated pattern for a teddy bear, but I wind up finding the HowJoyful template, which is quite difficult.
About the legs... I think the brown elliptical feet part should be the other way around - the larger 2/3 part of it should be sewn to the top leg (feet) and you seem to sew it to the bottom leg part (where the smaller part should be sewn).

How did you sew the head to the body after turning both parts right side out? Any suggestions on how to sew it clean?

Nice work!
When I finish my teddy bear I'll do the froggy one :)

Regards from Poland!
Michal.

Thanks Michal,
I'll have to try to fix that & see if it looks right. I appreciate your help.

When you finish your bear, send me a link so I can see yours, if you don't mind.

Did you see the other teddy bear I made for my daughter? The pattern is much simpler. http://chelstamps.blogspot.com/2012/01/kylas-teddy-bear.html

Thanks again & good luck,
Rachelle
