I made this for my mum for mother day and didnt quite realise how big the bear was till i had the pattern all printed out and stuck together so it was a bit late then for me to start over. However despite a few glitches i loved the result. I’ve never made a Soft toy before so it was great to see how easy it could be. I used the filling from two Ikea cushions (1.99 each) as it was way cheaper than buying metres of wadding and it is the same stuff anyway i discovered. I used two colours of fur and the hardest bit was the face and as you will see his little nose is not very straight so i messed up there a bit.But hey it gives a bear character not to be too Perfect.
