Let’s get started!
This big cuddly bear is really fun to make! His big size makes him perfect for a big toy for kids. He would also be a fantastic baby gift, if you sew on yarn eyes of course! To make a cute baby gift from this bear, use a light blue/pink on the hands and feet, then do a dark blue/pink for the main color of the body, head, arms and legs. Let’s get started! To make this bear we will start by creating the head, ears, nose. Then we will do the body, arms, and legs.
