I traced the templates to freezer paper and my little helper was eager to cut them out. I read the cutting instrutions carefully and ironed all templates for Fabric A to Fabric A. Ok, and now? Using 5 mm seam allowance means what? Do you want me to cut along the template or make it 5 mm bigger? After a short research on IG we cut along the template. First step was to assemble the ears. Easy peasy! Moving on to step 7: Making the face. No, that does not work. I am not sure if I might have misses it but there are some templates that need to me mirrored. To assemble the face we needed one right side and one left side. So to make the face you need one "Side Face" and one "Side Face mirrored". So back to cutting and going on to the next step. If I thought now that I can go straight forward and the bear is done in no time ... no way! Of course this mirroring has to be done to all the parts for the right side. Sorry, but that drives me mad! I hate cutting fabric for nothing. It was a nightmare to find out which templates had to be redone.
Anyway somehow we made it to the stuffing part and my little helper was eager to do this herself. She was very carefully not to "make the belly explode like mummies".
In the evening she was a proud Mama to Cherry! She did not let me stitch the nose nor was I allowed to draw a nose. She is happy with her little bear. It is just me that freaks out every time I look at it.
