After making a toy Monkey for Ava, I thought I would never make another stuffed animal again. Although once I saw Ava with Marie the monkey I decided , "Nah", they are just to cute and making them provides so much satisfaction.
Shortly after Marie, I found this great Polar Bear pattern at Two Owls Design. The minute I saw it I knew who I was going to make it for.
I started out hand stitching the pattern, but soon realized it would be pretty easy to do on the machine. So away I went: a piece here, a piece there and you can see the bear coming to life.
The fun part about this was making the face. You can see the mouth below and then the two button eyes. He ( or she ) actually looks like he has a personality. My sis calls him "Smirky". She says he has a constant smirk on his face which makes her happy.
Little Fabric Shop which I just love.
Do you have a favorite stuffed animal pattern you like to make? I'd love to hear about it.
