    I whipped together a little teddy bear from some some 6 1/2" nine patch blocks. He went together pretty fast. Think next time I will make some larger bears.

    The pattern is free at this addy: http://web.singnet.com.sg/~hsh17/sect1.htm

    I traced the pattern pieces onto fusable paper then cut out the pattern pieces and I fused the patterns onto the muslin, removed the paper backing of the fusable muslin patterns and fused the muslin patterns onto the nine patchs. Worked well but I think next time I will make larger teddy bears. It was a bit of a challenge turning body parts right side out and materials were pretty stiff to sew seams after stuffing.

    You shouldn't feel inadequate. We all started out not knowing how to do things. Just jump right in and experiment making something. I found some of the projects I take on are not the exact replica of what I started out to do and if I make mistakes, I learn from them and sometimes the mistakes I make on one project will work in the next. When I taught school I used to tell my second graders, "There is no such word as 'can't" try 'i will try".

    Barb, have you made bears before. In the instructions is states this pattern is for expirenced bear makers. :shock: :?: I have never made a bear. Hey I have never stuffed anything untill a week ago. We did a doll swap here for 6 inch dolls and you had to make Two. Mine are so silly. Anyway just wanted to know how much experience is needed. :D

    Dp you think it was better to fuse to the muslin than the patches? I was thinking of just fusing to the patches, but I guess fusing to the muslin first makes it much more durable, with not so many seam that could come out. ? Gosh I guess I want you to teach me............ :D

    ooooooooooooooooooooooh I loooooooooooooove him!! I collect bears!!!! He would look soooooooooo perfect in my sewing room!!!! what a neat idea to use up!! hmm I might have to check out that pattern!! ooh I love him!! Imagine if he was made out of fabric motif fabrics!! I have a pile of those and love to collect those kinds of fabrics!! Down the road I plan to make a Mason Jar shelf wallhanging. Every mason jar will have some kind of sewing motif fabric in it. I think it would look cute in my sewing room!!

    Wow, you just 'whipped him together'? Yup, talented and creative.

    If you whipped him together, which to me sounds like you did it kinda quick, you probably would make big bucks selling these bears (is the pattern copyrighted, I didn't notice). They would make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, gee every imaginable gift time would be perfect.

    I really am impressed and love this little guy.

    hugs sue

    I try looking to see if it is copyrighted and what I think is it is an old pattern that has been around for a long time. Most teddy bear patterns are. You are right, if she can "whip them up" it would be a good seller for sure! :D
