Let me see if I got this right, this is like a circle group, you cut out everything and mail it to one person, they pick a piece and sew it, then put their sewn piece and the rest of the pattern, and mail it to the next person, and they sew one of the pieces, and so on

Or we just mail a piece to each person, and they each mail it back and we put it together ourself?

can't wait for this to start, i have my pieces all cut out and i am tempted to make one for myself to practice with....

That's exactly what I wanted to do - I have one cut out and wanted to make it now.  I guess I will just wing it and see what happens.  The hardest is probably going to be figuring out how to attach the legs and arms.

I will organise people into a group of five if I could
Person A
Person B
Person C
Person D
Person E

You cut enough pieces to make an entire teady bear and put them in envelopes.  I will organise what goes in the envelopes soon as I know for SURE how many bears will be in the swap.  You will receive that info along with the addresses of everybody in your team after the sign up closes.
envelope 1
envelope 2
envelope 3
envelope 4
envelope 5

Person A keeps envelope 1
sends envelope 2 to B
3 to C
4 to D
5 to E

Person B keeps envelope 1
Sends envelope 2 to C
3 to D
4 to E
5 to A

etc.
If somebody wants two bears they will then become person B and C so you will be sending them twice as many pieces and be receiving twice as many pieces from them.

The pieces you send out will be the same as the pieces you receive so you will get one entire bear ready for you to sew and stuff yourself.

hmmmm....
according to spell check teddy is spelt teddy not teady.
shhhhhhh..... pretend like you don't notice.

I just attached mine by sewing the peices together before they were stuffed.  But I thaught there had to be a better way.
Can you explain to me how you attach them with buttons?

Feel free to give in to the temptation.
If more people than me have made a test bear then more people than me can help with questions.

Two things I will warn you about if you sew a test bear.
When I made it my body was a bit too small for my head, so I had to take in the back seem at the head (doesn't make a bit of difference to the quality of product at the end and its really easy)
And I had to widen the hole for the muzzle to go in, but that could have just been my cutting out.  I tend to add a bit much on the seem alowances for fear of cutting the paper with my fabric scissors.  (paper + fabric scissors = BAD)

The only reason I didn't mention this earlier is because I am a little afraid of people trying to correct this on the fabric peices before they send.
Left body MUST be the same as right body more than it must be the same as the head
The head backs and face MUST fit together more than they must fit body
And muzzle hole things are better off being too small for the other person to widen a little if needed then be too large and have the muzzle not fit.

I have a quick question on cutting out - On the paw, do you cut it out by itself or just add it to the inner arm piece?


edit:  After looking at it, I'm getting the impression that you cut the paw out 2 times, the inner arm 2 times, and the new outer arm 2 times.  Rosemary, since you've made this bear, can't you just cut the outer arm 4 times and make the arm one whole piece on both sides?  or is it necessary to cut out the inner arm and paw separately?  Also on the new outer arm piece, which grainline should you be using?  I'm assuming it's the arm piece and not the paw.

Thanks for the help guys, I like illustrations with my patterns and layouts (in fact a lot of times I could do without written instructions).  I guess I'm just a visual learner!

You could replace the inner arm with the new outer arm peice, but I think paws are cute so they will deffinatly be on the list of things to send to people.  *mental note, make list for people to check they made/labeled everything right*
So it is two inner arm, two paws, and two outer arms.  (reversing one set of each so you have a left side and a right side)

Oh good, I've already started cutting... 

Just want to double check, it's OK to use different fabrics for different parts, right?
