Felt Teddies

These little teddies are part of a bigger project I've been working on and which I'll show you in a future post. The pattern for the teddies is from the August 1989 issue of Your Family magazine.

I embroidered the faces of the teddies with stem stitch and satin stitch, making sure that they looked smiley and friendly. Then I used buttonhole stitch around the teddy shape, to join the front and the back together and I put in a little stuffing as I went along.

After my last post I flew to Brisbane and am visiting here for a few weeks, so you may not hear much from me until after the holiday season. My days are filled with looking after my grandson who turns two in December and he should soon have a new baby sister too.
