Excellent with minor modifications

This template is pretty good with modifications. I modified this cat to have a "small arm" for a girl who was born with half an arm. I didn't like the way the neck or face was on this pattern so I stripped the neck down so it didn't look as square and the face looked more feline. The tail is a great addition! I always add clothes to my work, choosing fabrics and accessories based on the child's taste. I love the final creation!

Pros
  • Quality construction
Cons
  • Socket required

simple simple pattern

I have tried other bear patterns before and didn't like them. They were difficult to make and didn't look like bears at all. I made memorial bears for a friend whose father sadly passed away and I wanted the bears to look good! I ordered this model and did a sample and it looked great! My kids wanted a pattern bear and wanted me to make more! So I used this template for the keepsake bears from her dad's shirts and they turned out amazing. I'm so happy. I have some leftover fabric to make bearโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Best in its niche
Cons
  • I will add later

Easy to use

I have never bought or used sewing patterns in my life. I was able to use this pattern to make a bear which turned out pretty well although I have no experience. I used an old towel for the fabric and sewed everything by hand. I think I ended up using about a square foot of fabric and about 10 ounces of fiberfill. The face is embroidered with silk. I also made a small scarf but it is not part of the pattern. Overall I was very happy with the pattern and the fact that it includes multipleโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Great price
Cons
  • Big and chunky
