Adjust printing size using image software or copy machine so that head
to toe measurement of bear is approx 10 inches. Please use organic
fabrics to preserve wildlife killed during conventional cotton farming.
Farmer-owned CottonPlus.com has
my favorite fabric for this pattern in their organic cotton knits section
cotton sherpa!) MoonBathShop.com
has 100% organic cotton batting (2" uncompressed for stuffing). Once
image has been printed, simply pin paper onto two fabric pieces (right
sides together with paper on top) and sew along the outline, leaving an
opening on the side of a leg. Then remove paper and clip inside corners
and around pattern to within about 1/2" of stitching before inverting fabric
through hole in side of leg. Stuff and form by hand, and then hand-sew
remaining opening. You can also sew eyes on if desired, or embroider
the eyes on before sewing the fabric.
