Pink Rose Bud Flannel (Front of Bear) Solid Pink Flannel (Back of Bear) Light Blue Flannel (Eyes) Fleece is used instead of batting
What was your inspiration?
A new niece and a pattern that I hadn't tried yet.
What are you most proud of?
It turned out so cute!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
These blankets really don't need to have the fleece/batting in them, since they are more for decoration than warmth. This was the first of these patterns I've made, have since made 3 more of different animals. The one that turned out the best was made out of flannel with no fleece/batting, using the 1" seam allowance, then instead of clipping the seams to "rag" them, I used pinking shears and trimmed the seams to about 1/4". CAUTION: if made according to the pattern you will have a wash machine FULL of threads after "ragging" the quilt.
