Before I get to that, take a look at Phillip Bear's fabulous head! I’m really happy that it turned out as well as it did. He has a personality, don't you think?
These pieces came together with amazing ease. I didn't understand the instructions on how to do the pleat in the ears at first, but then I remembered looking at Colette's bear at work and figured out how to make it look like that. After doing that, the instructions made sense. Go figure! It takes a total of ten pieces to get that shape to the head of the bear.
Arms attached to body.
Next, I started in on attaching the arms to the body. On my first attempt I ended up with the leg attached to the shoulder. Not good. I carefully removed the stitches and took a short break. The arms were tricky to get in without catching any other parts of the bear, but I did it!
That's it for tonight. I want to continue but I know I'm too tired to do it right and I don't want to mess it up. Tomorrow is another day and I believe I will finish it while the Chargers beat the Broncos in the afternoon!
