San Francisco, C...
haven’t sewn (aside from alterations which are a continuous part of the petite person life) for way too long…needed something gratifying to get me going again. The nephews love Paddington and about a year ago I spotted clareh’s Paddingtons here on BurdaStyle http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/paddington-tm-bear….and did a quick search on ebay there and then and there it was the original 1977 pattern $5. Snapped it quicker than you could say marmalade sandwich…..well the fur, fleece etc has been sitting in the stash for over a year….perfect for a get back to sewing project ….and needed to do quick as eldest nephew growing up fast….these were my first bears and they were super fun to put together.
