Children's Crafts - Tiny Teddies from www.walkaboutcrafts.comMaking the teddies – for each teddy you will need:

Piece of coloured felt about 3 x 5 inches (8 x12 cm)
Tracing paper
Thin paper
Scissors
Pin
Needle
Soft embroidery thread in contrasting colour to the felt
Cotton wool, wadding or old tights for padding
Black felt tip pen
Blanket stitch

Before making the teddies, it is a good idea to try out blanket stitch on a small square of felt cut in half and pinned together.

1. Thread a needle with some thread and push in into the felt at left hand edge. Work a couple of stitches into the same place to secure thread.

2. Bring the needle to the front and push it back into the felt to the right of the other stitches. Before pulling the thread tight, slip the needle through the loop of thread from the first stitch.

3. Practice blanket stitch in this way until you can make all the stitches really neat and even.

Teddy

1. Trace teddy template onto paper. Cut it out, fold felt in half and pin paper shape to it. Cut out two felt shapes. Pin them together.

2. Thread the needle with embroidery thread and blanket stitch around the teddy. Leave about 1 inch (2.5 cm) unstitched so you can pad it.

3. Pad the teddy with cotton wool, wadding or scraps of old tights. Be careful not to overfill it.

4. Stitch the opening with blanket stitch. To finish off, run the needle through two or three stitches then snip off the thread neatly.

5. Give your teddy a cheery face by adding a nose, mouth and eyes with a felt tip.
