|Got this rocker at a Craig's List outing for 25 dollars. I just love it.|
I have been so bad with Iron Craft. Its not that I havent wanted to do my project of the week. I have every intention then BAM the week is gone. Vacations, First Holy Communion and now last week a retreat. A quilters retreat. The first time I have been away, by myself, since I had babies.
I may not have completed the craft of the week but I did complete a few projects at the retreat or made serious progress on some of my other projects.
This bear, my daughter saw at a quilt shop. She wanted me to buy the pattern and make the bear. My daughter really doesnt ask for much so when she does I usually give it to her. (Like she didn't even want to request anything for Christmas last year). She told me she would like either an animal pillow or a signature bear. Since she is leaving her school next year I thought I might give her the signature bear. I didnt buy the pattern, I made it up. I think it turned out pretty cute. I wish I had put more of a neck on it so I could have achieved a more round face but I am still pretty happy with the result. I love doll stuff. So fun to create.
What I did:
I cut out a round, marking where I would put the ears. Next I cut out the ears, sewed tow pieces of fabric with the batting on top together. Turned it inside out which made the batting go to the inside. I then sewed the inside of the ear. I made the nose with batting on the inside and the eyes just black rounds with 1/4 inch turned under. I did put blush on the bears. It really made them come to life.
|I had to make one for my other daughter as well.|
