Another way to use up stash
The bears were made last summer - I'd seen similar ones on a patchwork website and thought I'd try it out. I love the pattern because you don't have to sew the head onto the body by hand - you machine sew it onto the body and stuff it all in one piece. However...if you look closely you will see that only one bear has a satin stitch nose. I had so much trouble doing that one that I gave up with the rest :-( . Well, I never said handsewing was my forte! I'm going to donate them to my son's school fete next month as they've sat in a basket in the sewing room all this time without a home. (Actually, they sat there for months as UFOs without button eyes or ribbon round their necks.)
To all of you who have left comments on my blog - thank you - they've really encouraged me.
