I have been working on more bears this week. These two are from the same pattern by Ala and Ela
Matty and Tilda
They are created in a sitting position and measure 8.5″ – 9″. Matty came out a bit bigger as I knitted a couple of more lines in the legs and body.
They are classic little bears and surpringly a quick knit, the hardest bit is sewing the legs properly so you get the bears in a sitting position.
I made Tilda first
Think if I make her again I’ll try and make the legs jointed so she can also be put in a standing position. Just a word of warning don’t overstuff the arms or you will have a tight squeeze getting her into the dress!
After making her I had to make a boy teddy, so started work on Matty
Although they are from the same pattern he does look a different little character.
His little trousers and jumper fit quite nicely and he looks quite a cute cuddly bear waiting for someone to love him!
