I designed this bear for my new grandson. I loved making him and the final result looked just like our Aussie Koala.
Not important, but your knitting weave needs to be tight enough so that your stuffing is not visible.
I am now retired, having worked as a Laboratory Analyst for 25 years. I have always loved to knit and sew but didn't have the time while working shift work and raising my 2 sons. I now have 5 grandchildren and lots of time to indulge in craft work.
