My friend and neighbor here at school is home to a small group of students with special needs. She came to me the other day with a cute pattern for a bear and basically wondered what to do with it- how to make it cute????
I remembered that I had a box of donated fur stashed away in my closet...Ah, ha! I knew there was a reason I was a pack-rat!
Here are the results!
Simply cut the shapes for your bear...head, arms, legs and belly. Assemble them with metal brads! They will bend to pose!
You may want to add buttons over the brads as seen here.
Then, add a leather nose and eyes of your choice.
Thanks for the inspiration Mrs. Petrewski!
