One Seam Teddy Bear



This one seam teddy bear is from Blah, Blah, Blahhg in Toronto's blog. The site is http://ax174.blogspot.com/2006/02/my-own-pattern-11-one-seam-teddy-bear.html.

I don't like seams, so this little teddy was right in my comfort zone. There is one seam between the legs and that is IT!. I used Blue Sky Alpaca's cotton for the teddy and his built in turtleneck. I hope to make many more. This little guy is on his way to a co-worker's soon to be born baby boy.

The pattern is easy to follow and I am so grateful to the fellow blogger for her free pattern; it is practically seamless. Just trust her directions and go.

I decided to stuff him with polyfiber fill. I bought some inexpensive socks and cut them and stuffed them in the shapes I needed as I went along. This way the fiber filling will not pull out of the teddy.

I am very enamored with him.....
Please leave me your email or blog so I can thank you for your comment.

thanks for the comment you left on my blog.

that's such a lovely bear, and the sock idea was a great one. I sometimes stuff toys with an old pair of tights for the same reason
