Project Baby Teddy Bears

The second pattern I ordered from Dolls and Day Dreams is a baby teddy bear. I'll be making two. One for a baby girl and the other for a baby boy.

This pattern has directions using felt for the snout and nose. I'm choosing not to use felt because these will be for 7-9 month old babies. I thought the fuzzy felt wouldn't be a good thing for a baby to put in their mouths. You know they'll try to eat the bears.

I attempted embroidery. This first face only took me 4 1/2 hours. I thought I'd never finish. I took my time and made small stitches while watching television.

I transferred the face onto the fabric by doing the pencil scribbling on the back of the pattern then tracing the face onto the fabric. Worked like a charm.

Since its 2am I will be heading to bed. Gotta be to work at 8am.

Dolls

I made these cute dolls for Christmas gifts. I bought a doll pattern from Dolls and Daydreams on Etsy. Had a hard time picking out a pattern.

I made Little Red Riding Hood dolls with a little basket. First time making dolls and they turned out nicely.

Next project are baby teddy bears.
