I'm so pleased with her! I've been reading so many past and current posts on Teddy Talk about embroidering noses. It's amazing how many techniques are used--pins, markers, paper templates, felt templates, tape, etc. I became quite overwhelmed and basically just decided to toss everything to the wind and embroidered her nose freehand like Paula Carter of All Bear. I figured I had nothing to lose because I could always take it out and redo it. I've been wanting to try this new shape that has little indents for nostrils and I just couldn't quite figure out how I wanted to try to draw it on the bear. But I was very surprised that it was rather easy just to "listen to the bear" and embroider without any aids. I'm sure her nose is not perfect, but I am still quite pleased with the result (especially now that it is waxed).
As I wrote last time, I've also been wanting to make needle felted eyelids. And I think they turned out quite well also! I believe one eyelid droops a bit more than the other, but I've decided it just adds to her personality!
