Anyway, in the end, I settled down to sewing the nose I told you about yesterday and yes, I did remember to take photos as I worked so now you can see my new bear start to come to life!
So, the next step will be to repeat the process, but this time, ensuring the finished nose is exactly the right size and shape to suit my bear.
Here we go again! Back into the centre of the muzzle, out to the left first, then to the right. This time my stitching exits slightly higher on the muzzle so that the nose will be the final size necessary to give him that all important bearsonality!
Can you see it taking shape now? I use my thumb to tension each stitch as I sew, so this is far from a speedy process, but definitely worth taking a little time and care over.
If I add a couple of finishing stitches horizontally across the top and bottom of the nose and we're almost there...
