What was your inspiration?
I had made one earlier and someone wanted to have me make a trio for her children and a nephew.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I used yarn that was larger than the pattern called for but it seemed to work out OK. Just be aware that different yarns create a different shaped bear. Sewing the head on was the hardest part. My first one had a wobble head and I tried different things to make it stay still. Sewing all around the head out around from the original seam did the trick.
