Boo the Bear :D

As I promised, today I will start to tell your crafts that I've done. Today it's about:

How To Make A Teddy Bear

You will need:-

-> A cloth - as how big you want your teddy to be and any colour!
-> 4 buttons - 2 for the eyes and another 2 is optional
-> A ribbon - also optional

-> A thread - make sure its the same colour with the cloth
-> A needle - don't leave it all over the world like I did :P silly me
-> Scissors - keep out of reach of children and infants
-> some pincushions (jarum peniti)
-> A table that receives light so you won't be damaging your precious eyes
-> A piece of paper

P/S: Addition:-
-> Permission from parents or adults
-> Adult supervision for children

OK, now we've got everything we need

 so the first step is

Draw a template for the bear and here's one. It's the easiest that I've found

This is the back-left template. As written there, turn it over for the back-right.

This is the front-right template
 Turn over for front-left.

!. Now, draw it on a piece of paper as big as you want and no bigger than your cloth. There's no specific measurement in the book so I just drew it. Make sure you have the curves similar to the template shown.

Tip 1#: Draw the front-right template like this and then cut it out. Then draw another clone of it and cut it out. Just cut the nose so it'll be more like the back one. (see the back template before cutting okay) Label front-left/ front-right.

These are my cut templates

Step 2:

Pin them to the cloth and cut them (front-right and left and back-right and left) so now you should end up with four pieces.

Step 3:
Pin the fronts together and sew them using backstitch.  Do the same to the back templates leaving a hole from point C to D to stuff the bear later.

Step 4:
Now, pin the front side to the back side and them together.

Step 5:
Embroider a nose for the bear(that's what I did) or easier just sew a button for it later. Then, stuff the bear.

Step 6:
Sew the buttons for eyes and if you want you could sew some button on his body just for fun. If your bear looks weird-kind of neckless, tie a ribbon at where its neck should be.

Yeah. I know. My grandmother said it looks like it has eyes disease but actually I want it to look like the characters in the movie coraline.
