The poor bears - particularly the UFOs - have taken a back seat long enough. I miss them and they miss me, so I am going to make some time to bearmake every day. I have a few little mohair guys I want to finish, and a couple of new patterns I want to try. And then I want to, hopefully - FINALLY - put some little guys up for adoption!
Ears used to be a headache for me, but I've sorted that. Now my headache is footpads. I just can't get the hang of them! Paw pads, when I use them, no problem. Foot pads? A mess. I just can't seem to get them to be the right size and to sew in nicely. Bear in mind (excuse the pun!) I hand sew all of my bears.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks for sewing in the perfect footpad? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
