Real Noses

Real Teddy Noses for Remembrance Bears

was asked to make three Remembrance Bears recently using two waistcoats.

 The bears were to be wearing mini waistcoats. There wasn't going to be enough fabric from the waistcoats to make the bears out of it so I decided to make fluffy traditional bears. A bit out of my comfort zone.

Anyway, I decided to use a brown fleecy fabric for the bear body, and the waistcoat fabric for the paw pads and feet.

A different nose was needed for these bears, so I attempted to sew the traditional noses instead of the way I normally do them.
