    Hi :-)

    I am doing OK with the pants. I ended up making them better fitted at the waist by taking apart the band and fixing the seam at the center back. It’s not the best way because now the front is wider than the back, but at least they fit well. I am reading a book called “The easy guide to sewing pants” and I think it’ll help me a lot with my next pair.

    I’d love to see a picture of the corinne pants you made. I also bought this pattern but haven’t tried it yet. I think it’s a good pattern because you can also shorten it to be above the knee and you can make them wide or just as is. The best part is the top band which does not press into the belly as much as a rubber waistband.

      Have a picture of the corine pants with out my gran daughter in them just in case they don’t fit her they look nice all made up if they are ok and she likes them was thinking of making some short’s as well but that will be next year.
      As well as a picture of the pants I took a picture of the other stuffed toy I made it is the honey bear pattern I got for free when I bought the panda baby blanket from funky friend’s I made him in a purple fleecy instead of the tan.
      Will put both photo’s up next week.

      Hi Keren,glad I can help.
      Had a look at all the things you have mad they are wonderful.
      How are you going with making pants ?
      Finished making the corine pants for my gran daughter I hope to see her this weekend and I will get her to try them on hopefully they fit her and I can take a picture of her in them.
      What do you think about this pattern ?

    Thanks for the explanation! I would also like to ask: did you sew the bear by machine or by hand? And how long did it take? I am interested in making stuffed animals and I would love to find a good book or patterns on the subject.

      Yes I did sew the bear by machine on a very small stitch it was a 2 on my machine that’s so the stuffing doesn’t come through.
      With the time probably about 2 hours all up. I don’t go bye time I just sew and do things in between
      Go to this website www.funkyfriendsfactory.com they have e-patterns as well. I am making the Honey Bear at the moment nearly finished.I have bought the panda baby blanket so I hope to start that soon
      .
      With books I didn’t use any. Here is another site to go to as well they have free patterns and they might have books as well http://www.bearycheap.com/free%20patterns
      /patterns.html
      They are Australian sites .

      Hi Keren, thank you for your lovely comment.
      Yes I did use a pattern I was tiding up my sewing room and came across this very old pattern so I made him up.
      And safety eyes and noses are so children can’t pull them off if you go to your craft shop they should be able to show you, but here is a web site to look at http://www.gerrys.com.au/home.php?cat=9
      On that website you have a place to search for things just type in safety eyes and a picture should come up.
      Hope I explained ok
