Here's the scruffy little ted that I finished last night. It has been in my sewing bag for about 6 months - I bought a piece of sparse mohair, cut the pattern out and started to stitch it together. Then I put it to one side and it has been left unfinished for weeks.
The reason I stopped making it was because I didn't like it at all. You need to remember that the fur all over the face was long at it just looked like some kind of "yeti" monster. When I was finally fed up of the pieces hanging aroung my sewing box I decided to stuff the head and crack on with finishing it. After I had trimmed the fur to create the face things were starting to take shape.
Now that it is finished I'm starting to really like it but I can't decide how I want to finish it. I tried a lace collar, then a little key necklace , but I am also thinking about it would make a nice fairy teddy. I thought that I could make some butterfly wings from acetate and glitter them up and add a few flower and fairy things. What do you think?
The trouble is, my teddy bear's always seem to look like little boys but I think that with a bit of work this one could be made into a little girl.
If I change it, I'll put some more pics on the blog to show you what I've done. Off to play with some new Whiff of Joy stamps that arrived today - had a bit of an ebay day the other day!
Thanks for stopping by!
