This little guy was one of my first sewing creations right after I purchased a sewing machine. Amazing that I saw the pattern in Family Circle Magazine, and thought, 'What a cute bear! I'm going to stitch that up!'
I had zero fear...and a minute amount of sewing skills at that point. A thrilling combination, yes? :)
This tiny teddy is almost 20 years old. I guess he's not that tiny. He sits almost a foot tall.
His head has always been a bit tilted, though I feel it gives him character. His arms articulate. I remember using a very long needle and very strong thread, criss-crossing through his body from limb to limb.
Honestly, I'm surprised he's held together.
Although, perhaps his stitches haven't popped...because he was created with a great deal of love.
What is your favorite Christmas creation?
Sidenote: My domain name will expire in a couple of months. I'm seriously contemplating not renewing it. If that happens, I will shut down this blog entirely...and remove the content. If you want any of the AG Doll Patterns, it's a good idea to grab them now.
