Taking that first step in designing your own patterns can be a difficult one and most of us learn the hard and difficult way - or give up! Jennifer has included three challenging bear patterns which aim to show you how - relatively - easy bear making is, as well as many useful tips and pointers to make your life easier. She takes you step by step through the process of making your own bear, from visualisation to completion. Detailed instructions and tips on pattern-making, cutting, sewing, needle sculpture and stitching the nose. Jennifer also looks at the world of being a teddy bear artist and some useful aspects of being in business - I found this book helpful and enjoyable. ...Cymruted
