Ah! Brilliant! The expression is priceless - it's got me grinning too. Grin

Adorable - I absolutely love his face and his expression. He's very endearing. Grin

Are his eyes buttons, just out of curiousity? They look really good.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first bear - and first machine-sewn anything, too! (Contains two pictures.) on: August 15, 2009 01:32:52 PM
I think it's about time that I posted about one of my projects on here. However, it isn't one of the video game-related ones* that I'm working on (as you might perhaps expect from my username Tongue) - instead, it is a teddy bear that I was commissioned to make for a raffle. He's the first teddy bear I've ever made, and also the first item I have ever made with a sewing machine.

*(I've been working on one particularly long-winded project for myself for quite a while, but because I started him by hand before I got my sewing machine, I intend to finish him that way too. I have no idea how long it's going to take, though, because I am a bit of a perfectionist and want to make sure that I get it all right. Tongue)

Anyway, here is the bear in a photograph that was taken just after I finished him;



And here he is again after he was dressed in the outfit that the person who commissioned him picked out for him (the outfit was purchased from Bear Stores, a UK teddy bear clothing web-store, if anyone is curious);



He's made out of chocolate brown polar fleece, with toffee-coloured felt for his inner-ears and foot-pads. His eyes are big, shiny black buttons, and his nose is made of black felt (all are securely stitched on from the inside - that was hard work!). I originally added a mouth, but it looked a bit odd as he had more personality without it, and so that was removed. He's made from a pattern in the book "Creative Soft Toys to Sew" by Milner Publishing, and the only change I made to the instructions is that he's not jointed - he just sits. Tongue

I learned quite a few new techniques during the making of this fellow that I didn't know before, and I have already been able to put those things to work in the other projects I'm currently working on.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing him. Grin

I'm not sure if this is suitable, but I hope this is helpful in some way. It doesn't cover toenails, however, and applies to a pattern from the website in question, but I have no doubt that it can be adapted to other projects. Tongue

The only bunny pattern I can think of off of the top of my head (and, indeed, the only one in my sewing-related bookmarks) is the Silver Seams Skinny Bunny pattern (there are some pictures of the results here).

I'm afraid I don't know of any others (aside from a couple in "Find your patterns here!"), so I hope this is useful. Smiley

Oh my goodness, he's wonderful. Never before have I seen such a cute stuffed dog. Smiley

(Here, have a "This Rocks". Grin)

Gorgeous! And I absolutely *love* his hat, and the fact that it appears to have a teddy bear-themed skull and crossbones - nice touch. Grin

Dylan is absolutely wonderful, and he clearly has a personality all his own - you've done an excellent job. Cheesy

Plastic pellets are definitely the way to go for weighting (plenty of washable toys use them, as far as I'm aware).

I'm afraid that I have no experience with needle-sculpting at all, so I don't know how well that would fare with being washed. Sorry.
