In the latest issue of Sew Hip there is a fabulous pattern for a cute little teddy bear, and with two heavily pregnant friends I am aware that I need to pull my finger out and get creating. This is the most detailed / fiddly project I have taken on and I loved it. I bought waaaaaaaaay too much fleece for the slippers I'm making so had plenty for this bear (and more besides).
I got ridiculously excited when I made the legs - so much so that I walked them around for a bit ... ok, very sad!
and then when I got the body together ... well, that was another batch of over excitement.
In the first issue of Homestyle sewing magazine there was a cute patchwork pig. I made him straight away and then rather than buying some toy stuffing I have kept him close at hand to stuff all my bits of thread and fabric cuttings, so he's environmentally friendly too! He is now full so I have just made another one, ready to take all my cuttings
