-Please look after this bear.
Last week I was asked to make a Paddington Bear. Luckily I found a free pattern, don’t get me wrong I would gladly pay for a pattern but I have trouble reading some written patterns and charts. For me it is better if I can see before hand if I can understand the pattern or not.
I made one modification, because I really don’t like to sew a lot of parts I made the head and body in one piece. I have ended up with dolls with crooked heads or legs, although I think he might be suffering from crooked legs.
Overall I really, really like how it turned out. I think this is the first time I don’t have that “Expectation vs Reality” problem, where my version is always way off from the actual design. I wanted to make him fuzzy by brushing the yarn, but I didn’t want to risk making a mistake that will lead me to start all over again, since it would be my fist time.
