teacups and bears


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!

  2. He looks very content with himself in his teacup!

  3. He is quite adorable. How long did he take to knit?

    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.

  4. so cute! I love how his name is french! :)


  5. Thanks for all the sweet comments :)

  6. He's so cute! You've inspired me to give me own soft toy a go!

  7. He's very cute! I need to learn how to knit toys, there's a few I'd love to try!
