Ok, so I wanted to try my hand at making a teddy, with all the pieces and stuff. So I found a pattern in an old magazine for a bear that sat about 30cm tall and so I scaled it down to quarter size and cut out my little pieces and started putting him together...legs, body, arms and then when I got to making the head I did it and it just looked too small. Here is a dumb dumb useless pic of some bear pieces stuck in my pinless pincushion.

So before I assembled the whole bear I made another bigger head and put the bear together like that. But it looked boring...and just too teddyish. AND I had this spare head. I was wondering whether to hang it off my phone or maybe stick it on a skewer cut in half and make a victory staff for the other ugly bear (he has a gross chin/jaw/grandpa-forgot-his-falseteeth look happening). But that seemed to morbid...AND THEN my dear brother Ben suggested this...

Hehe...here are some more pics...from the left...(look at his chin!! Shocked )

And from the rightish...

And from the back...

Sooo that's my mutant tiny blue bear. I got quite frustrated with this little dude, what with the ugly jaw and messy stitches and the too small/too big head stuff. But I sorta like his absolute weirdness now, even his dumpy chin doesn't look too bad when he's a mutant bear!

Sooooo enjoy my fellow craftsters! And thank you, Ben, for your great idea!

ps. I'm not sure why he's sitting on the pincushion. I also put pins in my pincushion! Yay! Aren't they lovely and colourful?

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

He is sooo gorgeous! What a cool idea. Cos he's not scary or anything...he's all blue and sweet and then it's like.... "OH LORDY HE HAS TWO HEADS!!!!!"

Oh he's so cute!!!!  I just wanna cuddle him! And I like his litle mutant head! it's quirky! Where did you get the pattern for this? I tried to make a bear and he came out all mis-shapen. It was tragic.
Yes anyhow, I really want to make one cause yours is so cute! By the way I'm also tempted to finally stop being scared and try the amish puzzle ball/pincushion.
Yes, lots of ranting, good project, cutest bear ever.

dirt_made_my_lunch, undoredo, Bunny of DOOM!, Mary Bell, monkeystuffer, sexy_penguin_  & novastarlet thanks for your comments! I'm glad I could make you all smile or laugh or be entertained!

sexy_penguin_, I got the pattern from a magazine I found in a thrift shop, when I got home, I pretty much took the pattern out, cut out the pieces and read the instructions and ignored them (they were shoddy instructions!) and did it on my own. Oh and do make the amish puzzle ball, it's retty satisfying. I recommend you try it in felt cos it doesn't fray and all that...but also make it smallish cos the dimensions change as it gets bigger (I think). Good luck!

And to anyone new, yay!...

you're welcome for the comments, and I think I am gonna try the puzzle ball- yours is so pretty! Do you by cahnce remember the name of the pattern/ magazine it was in? I think i could probably find it online and i REALLY want a little bear of my own, possibly with some random mutation! But yes... thanks for posting it, it's so cute!
