There's this one if you haven't come across it https://www.lovecrafts.com/en-gb/c/article/teddy-bear-sewing-pattern - it uses fabric rather than fake fur (I made teddies using fake fur 4 years ago - I'm still finding clumps of it!), but would probably be fine for short fur if you wanted.
I'm presently making a rag doll for my niece - she wanted a 'rainbow' one for her birthday
Crafting from stash only 2023 - 5/12 items finished
I am already doing a cross stitch for her and she gets a teddy bear every year without fail so Im hoping my sewing skills will still be up to scratch!
Awww Id love to see pictures of your ragdoll
@[email protected] good luck with your bow ties. Im sure they will look fab!
I spent most of yesterday reclaiming the house now the kids are back in school / college so today I am finding that I am a bit bored with nothing to do so I think I will be getting a bit of crafting done after I have had lunch.
I've finished my quilt and I'm sure it'll get lots of use this winter. Most of the fabrics were bought specially for this project although 2 of the florals were from my stash. The backing is a pink flannelette sheet I bought from a charity shop several years ago. It's a bit bobbly but nobody's going to see that. The weight of this sheet gives the quilt a heaviness that I like.
Happy crafting on this horrible wet day
Now at 54/100
Hopefully small boy will be at school Monday, so I'll have my two non-working days to catch up on sewing! I've got a few half done projects to finish off- PJs, another draught excluder and a coat, plus a couple of blouses to make for me.
128/100- bust my craft stash 2022!
114/75- bust my craft stash 2021!
90/52- bust my craft stash 2020!
On the sewing front I've still not started recovering the stool. I'm very good at procrastinating especially when it's something I'm not keen on doing 😂.
thanks @sammy_kaye18 ☺ hope youve managed to get used to the quiet!
