Meet Eddie

Today I have spent  all day creating Eddie. Preparing the pattern, cutting out, and sewing and stuffing...then more sewing...
Ready to sew

The supervisor is in place and snoring 
I managed with most of the sewing until it came to putting the bottom piece on , that was a slow and tricky job...it took me 4 attempts to get the legs attached properly, the fabric kept sliding and the seam was too narrow and when I turned it around the wrong way the tops of the legs kept popping out!! 

Finally it is all together, now the stuffing. I had made a bag and filled it with beans to make the teddy a bit heavier - he is destined to be a comfort teddy where son#1 works.


Meet Eddie!!! Just needs some surgical help on his back seam and he is all done.
This pattern comes from Shiny happy world there are many wonderful patterns over there, well worth a look. Some of the childrens quilts are wonderful.
Time for some dinner I think.
Happy sewing.
