A bit of crafting

I've mentioned before the blog that my friend Jo writes.  Jo is a soft toy designer by trade and a week or so ago she posted this free pattern on her blog.  Well I just had to try it and here's the result

Obviously it's not very polar bear-like as I used the only material I had available at the time, but at least it matches my dining room curtains though!  I also didn't have the proper stuffing available so it's stuffed with scraps of curtain lining but for a first attempt I'm quite pleased with it.  A touch of the wonk gives it a bit more character I think.  It was really quite easy to do and Jo's instructions were clear with the photos helping for the tricky parts.  I really enjoyed making it and I am now contemplating who I can make ones for as Christmas presents.....

Now I just need Jo to post some more patterns so I can expand my repertoire :)
