I always think little toys look even more cute when there are several pictured together. I made these small bears from cotton fabrics using the pattern in my Cross Stitch Keepsakes book. I made them originally from pale coloured linen with cross stitch decoration - or you could add a child's name or birthdate. (The template is so simple that they are made quickly and have lots of possibilities for decorating.) I then made a few little bears from printed cotton fabrics - they are nice to match to a quilt as a special gift.
Now I'm working on a different creature - can you guess what it is?
