Nose
You can design the tip of the nose now, or you can do it later. It depends how
you like it and feel comfortable with it. Important is that you embroider the tip
of the nose on the upper side of the nose construction.
Embroider mouth on the bottom part of nose construction, using black
embroidery thread.
Stuff the nose (construction) a little, place it on the bottom half of the head,
pin it and sew it nicely.
Sew the eyes to the very top edge of the nose construction, leaving 7 stitches
between them. It is optional to make the eyebrows or eyelashes (if you will be
making a girl bear)..
At the end, place and pin the pocket belly. Sew it nicely, hide the ends.
Your Blue Bear is done and ready to play with.
Hope you enjoyed making it and kids will have fun playing!
