As you may have noticed, I took a bit of asabbatical from my heirloom bear making and cross stitching so I haven’t posted a Teddy Bear Tuesday for awhile.
I’m happy to be back into my sewing box and today I gave Scragg one of his ears (woohoo!). This time I squished them and I am very happy with how it came out but honestly? I’m nervous to do the other one now in case it doesn’t match!:P
Here’s the front:
And here’s the back:
Freddy’s ears were pretty roughly done but this time I hid the stitches so well I can’t find them unless I look really hard, so again, I’m pretty proud! Teddy bear ears are rather difficult for me to attach, I’ve found. Hopefully it will get better with practice. Which means I have to do the second ear for Scragg before I can move on and do my next bear (and then the next and the next..).
Hopefully I’ll learn quickly how to make these ears match, too.
