teacups and bears


Friends,

I finished Henri. It took me forever, but I finished. It took me so long because I am terrible at sewing, but I'm very happy with my newest little teddy bear. I'd love to try this project again so I could work on my sewing techniques, however. How ever do you sew a leg onto a body without a huge seam? I couldn't wrap my head around it. 

But, as long as you don't turn Henri around, he's quite adorable. Great for a first try if I do say so myself.


Now to find my next project. Maybe another plush toy?

  1. Aaw he's so cute, well done! I did a knitted bear a while ago (features in this post http://claireabellemakes.com/2012/04/25/a-handmade-challenge/) and found it tricky to sew up too! The head on mine was really floppy!

    1. He took about three days to make. I have really bad joint pain sometimes so I couldn't knit him in one sitting like I would have liked. The sewing part took just as long as the knitting for me because I'm not very good at it.
