I need a easy,beginners softie hand sewn pattern.
We got that "Learn to Sew" 6" teddy bear kit,but it's junk. Tongue
So,my mom is going to get me some scraps to make something out of--it has to be hand sewn.
Does anyone know a easy beginners pattern?
Thank you!

Anything that can be sewn by machine, can be sewn by hand. Most beginner sewers learn how to make a pillow first. You can make your own softie pattern by drawing a 2-D image and then just cutting 2 pieces right sides together.
If you want something more difficult than that, you can always try Ghilie's Poppet pattern, available for free by PMing her. There have been several novice sewers on Craftster who've completed a poppet as their first sewing project.

I've been browsing a lot of  Poppet topics lately,and they seem like a good choice.
I'll definitely PM her for her pattern,and try it out.
Thanks!
