See.. I'd like to sign up for this, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to attach the arms, or really follow.  I attempted to make one, but man, it turned out really bad, didn't even look like a bear.. so I think I'll just watch the pretties being made and be jealous

Quote from: Rosemary
question for anybody who has made the bear.
I was thinking of stuffing the arms and legs then getting them in the postition you want them in then sewing like in a large circle circle from the inside of the body so they are held on by a large amount of fabric instead of just a small bit, this should make 'em less floppy right?

I thought of sewing the arms/legs on that way, too, but I think it would work best before you stuff them - how would you sew them on after they are stuffed?

congrats on the job!

I agree, the button joints would never stand up to children. I use my bear as a couch buddy and last night he got a war wound and his leg was amputated.  Cry I'm hoping major surgery today will give him a good chance of walking again, but we may have to resort to prosthetics.

I think you should  give him a litle crutch (you can say he was a Civil War bear... Wink )...

oh no!
was it the fabric that riped or the stitching!

Mine is floppy but it holds together fine, infact I have been dressing him and undressing him constantly for the last few days because I am trying to sew him some little outfits. (most unsucessfully, those legs and arms are the finniest shape)

The fabric ripped, which is easily fixed, really-- it was a combination of too-small buttons and not sewing back through the exact same hole. I could have him fixed by now, but I kinda like the crutch idea  Cheesy

What size buttons did you use?   

Do you think on the large teddy using two 5/8' buttons one on each side of the arm (with 2 attached on the inside of the body) help distribute the stress on the arm better?  I'm just planning ahead and am debating on how I want to do this when the time comes.

I definately think as large as you can manage the better. I used very small buttons (I didn't know any better).

Help! I bought some doll joints (they were in the area where the animal eyes were, so I assume I can use them for bears, too), but I don't know how to use them!

I'm guessing there are three parts- two discs with holes in the center of each, and a threaded screw-like piece.

If I had to do it right now, without any instructions or advice, this is what I would do-
1. Make a hole in the body and in the limb at the points of attachment.
2. From inside the body, put the screw-like piece into the hole so it is sticking outside the body.
3. Thread one of the discs onto the screw-like piece.
4. Stick the screw-like piece (now with disc attached) into the hole in the limb (from the outside of the limb to the inside).
5. From the inside of the limb, thread the second disc onto the screw-like piece.
6. Stuff body parts and sew closed.

Is this even close to being right? I want to try making a bear tomorrow out of some fleece I have.

Thanks for your help!
