Huggable Bear

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Her ears are plain yarn on the front and hairy on the back. I was not keen to have them hairy all over as I thought they might get "lost" among the hair on her head. I also did not want to make her ears completely from plain yarn, so arrived at the choice I made. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is much easier to sew the body parts together if you use a curved needle. It will poke through one body part and out of the other much more easily than a straight needle. This was especially good when sewing the head onto the body. I had a curved needle in my sewing kit from when I used to sew bears, but I recently bought another one, so they are still available.

What you will need

  • An eyelash yarn which I found easier to knit than the twisted yarn I used for my first bear. You can see how different the bears look when made from different types of yarn (and using different needle sizes).
