Gifts under £10 - Karen

Who's up for a bit of sewing? Those little teddy bear would make a perfect gift for a little one who will cherish it for years to come. 
Karen was kind enough to make a pattern for you to download and print so you can make your own teddy bear. 

Helloooo! I have made little teddy bears for this and have included my pattern, which is for a 6inch/15cm bear but you could easily enlarge it for a bigger bear!

Using the pattern cut out your bear. I used Calico which is double sided but if you use one-sided fabric remember to cut half your pieces the other way! 
Using a seam allowance of 5mm, sew up your seams in the following order (leaving a gap in one of the centre body seams for turning and pressing as you go) - centre body seams, centre head seams, head to body seams, ear pieces. Turn the ears and pin/tack onto one of the heads to line up with the marks. With right sides together join the back and front pieces together. Snip all the seams and turn, stuff with washable stuffing (or you could use old tights) and sew up the gap in the back seam. One bear finished! 

This week again we have a prize draw feature across the blog, newsletter, Facebook and Twitter 
Three vouchers are up for grabs: £25, £20 and £15.   
It’s easy to enter, simply place an order on line with us.  Everyone who places an order between 16th and 22nd November will automatically be entered into the draw and at the close three lucky people will be drawn at random to win the vouchers

See you tomorrow
