bear

Last month I made this owl for my best friend who is having a girl. Another good friend had a baby shower today but she is having a boy so I wanted to create something similar just boyish. My mom bought this book, One-Yard Wonders, so we spent the weekend flipping through it and came across a stuffed bear pattern. I thought if I took off his arms and legs he might make a good toy and I love the way he turned out!
The pattern suggested a corduroy fabric but I decided to use an old pair of railroad pants instead. The added touch of hand embroidery on his face makes him all the better. I even added a small bell inside so he is kind of like a rattle. He was the perfect topper for the gift box.
