What are you most proud of? I was thrilled when the 9 year boy entered his bear from my class in the local fair and won first prize! We had a lot of fun so I just kept drawing up more characters my class requested for the next project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? For my first Teddy Bear I would choose a sparse mohair and ultra-suede fabrics as they are easy to stitch and do the needle sculpting with.
