Then, people asked me for woven comfort bears, and I started sketching and drawing .
The drawings that really delighted me were for a ~flat~ teddy bear, all round and rolly polly. So, I have designed this dear little flat teddy bear to be woven on weaving sticks or peg looms.
A ~FLAT~ Teddy Bear?! Seriously? Yes!
The Rolly Polly Flat Bear is a charming little teddy bear that is meant to be small, because it’s one of my series of comfort bears. So it fits in the palm of your hand, or in a pocket.
Because it’s small and flat, it can go everywhere.
Rolly Polly Flat Bear can be stitched to a hat or a bag or have a pin stitched to it’s back and be worn as a pin or whatever you can imagine.
It can also be popped into an envelope and mailed to a friend.
Being a very little Rolly Polly Flat Bear is a good thing- it’s so easy to have adventures when you are small and flat.
And, Rolly Polly Flat Bears are especially good for teddy bear makers, since they are so easy to make.
You can make different sizes of the Rolly Polly Flat Bears by using different sizes of weaving sticks and different thicknesses of yarn.
I’ve decided to make Rolly Polly Flat Bears for our Christmas tree and for all our friends and relations’ Christmas trees, too.
I hope that you will have fun weaving Rolly Polly Flat Bears, and please do take pictures and share them to show what your Rolly Polly Flat Bears have gotten up to!
