Oh so cute!
Really cute and love fabric for nose!
It is super cute! :)
That is adorable!! Just wantta "hug" it!!
love it, love it, love it. Can't wait to get started on mine.
Really cute! I bet his velvet nose is sooo soft-great idea!
Thanks everyone! I can't wait to see all of yours!
SO did you go with the 200% or 400% enlargement? And what size pillow did it make in to?
Terryt1955 The pattern calls for both sizes - the 400% is for the front and the 200% is for an additional block on the back. I printed both sizes but am not going to put both on one pillow like the directions - I'd prefer just a plain foldover back. I'm going to make an additional block and use it for something else though. The 400% puts the paper piecing at just under 12" finished and with the borders the pattern makes an 18" pillow.
Thanks for all the details. I have all my fabric and need to dive in but I'm not very confident about paper piecing. "Just Do IT!"
I love the snowflake border...too cute!
Cute idea for the nose fabric. I love the snowflakes too!
He looks so naked without his black nose! I would hand sew the nose back on. Have you ever used voile? Sew right side together then turn the nose and then appliqué the nose back on.
Oh poor bear needs a nose job.Sorry, I have no suggestions except maybe applique a suede like fabric that doesn't fray.
Oh poor bear and poor Rebecca!! I have no ideas as you and others have great ones but hope his recovery goes smoothly;-)
I would applique his new nose. Just make it a little bigger, put a bit of fray check on the white edges underneath and no one will ever notice it but you! I so love your snowflake border.
Applique would be my way to go as well- but regardless- he's a very cute bear!
I hope your polar bear is recovering nicely from his surgery. I also am using some velveteen in my project, so thanks for the heads up.
