- Easy to make and so adaptable...
The ears were a slight issue for me, as I kept forgetting to turn the toy back out to the front side before sewing them...so had to unpick and redo. Each toy is and will be individual as I'm still not getting the ears the same size but I'm sure the recepient isn't going to mind.
I decided to make a few more with pockets at the back, so that little gifts of books, toys, pencils etc could be added. I'm loving the look!
I used Xmas themed buttons for the eyes and having 'handmade with love' small buttons available, I sewed one into the ear to create a nice effect like the Stief bears. By sticking my fingers into the ears I created a dent giving a visual effect of indented ears, which added to the appearance.
I have created a set for my grandson, varying sizes so that he has mummy, daddy and me set. These are going to have an added feature...hair!
I've really enjoyed making them and I'm sure that anyone can produce their own version from a simple pattern.
My next type will be crocheted, so instead of knots, I will use single/double crochet. I will try various thickness of wools such as 4 ply, DK, super and Aran. Thus changing the size of each. Be nice to create a set for a baby mobile.
A big thank you to the designer...it's been an inspiration.
