What are you most proud of? It came out perfect and my son loved it! (He's 30)! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Whether it's for a child or not, if it looks like a toy it should be child-safe and child-proof. This can even go into the washer & drier. Eyes & nose are safety-lock and it's non-allergenic. And so cozy. This guy is about 20" tall but because he's stuffed with polyfil he only weighs a pound. Most handmade bears I see on line are too small, I think.
