A soft toy which I really enjoy making is the little Teddy Bear. I was asked for a Teddy in a bright bold colour (like Red, Green or Blue) rather than the softer colours I used before. The bear would be going to a little boy.
I loved the Navy I found in the bottom of my yarn stash and decided to give it a go. Once he was started, I just knew that this was the perfect colour for this bear.
I tried making a white nozzle, which I felt was too bright. I also made and tried a lighter blue, but in the end an “all Navy” bear seemed the best.
I made a contrasting removable bow tie (secured with a little blue button) and used a little red heart shaped button next to his tail.
I hope he will bring lots of love to the little boy he’s destined for.
