A few weeks ago, B came to me & asked if he could make some stuffed bears to give away as gifts. I told him I would look in to. I saw a kit while I was shopping early in the week but it would only do one & I knew he wanted to make at least three or four (or more!).
Shortly after that a link was shared at one of my groups. It was in regards to a Charlotte Mason styled nature & art kit. I was intrigued so I went to check it out. I was even happier when I saw the kit! It's very cool & I did end up buying one. They are made by a college student & she sells them at her blog, Hearts and Trees.
I scrolled down to see what other things might be there & struck pay dirt! There was an entry there on how to make stuffed bears including step-by-step instructions and a pattern. I printed it off and told B about it. He was so excited!
He went in to the art supplies & found some felt we had & immediately sat down to get started. I only helped him a tiny bit. I did a bit of cutting & threading his needle for him. I also helped him get started with the sewing, but he did 95% of the bear. I think he did a great job. He worked on it until he finished it & then did another one the next day. I timed him on the second bear & it took him about two hours from start to finish. Then he made a list of felt he wants me to buy. This makes me one pretty happy mama.
