Work in Progress

Custom Order #4
for Debbie
1 teddy bear using pattern #2

Debbie sent me this mink coat

These little bits of mink will soon be transformed into a teddy bear!

Even though I prefer sewing completely by hand ... to speed things along I will sometimes sew the larger pieces on my machine. This particular mink pelt has areas where the pelt is thicker and that makes it more difficult to hand sew (I was happy to use my machine or my fingers would have been very sore). Regardless of the difficulty in sewing I ALWAYS sew the head by hand because, of course, the head is the most important part of the teddy.

Almost finished !!!
