Finished the bears!




Well at last I have finished these 12 bears! All the blanket stitching done, eyes and mouths done by hand. I find it amusing that a few different sized stitches can make the difference between a smiley bear or a bear with a smirk!

I asked Michelle on Friday her EDD, 19th of February. She's working up till the 25th of January. Just writing that in so I have it recorded somewhere as I will forget!

Can cross one thing off my list of to sew projects that I posted awhile back. I was planning on making my neice a bolster out of those Strawberry Shortcake flannels I got from that co op. But the other day when my dearest sister was over, Grace was wearing the comfy pants I made her from the same material, and boy did my sister go on about how ugly the material was! She is never one to mince words! So I thought pfffttttt! Not wasting my time doing that then!

I agree it looks great! And you are remarkably neat around all the curves. My machine has this stitch but I haven't mastered corners as well as you.
