When I started designing the Teddy Bears to weave on the Saffron loom from Mirrix for the
2022 Summer Weaving Challenge, I had NO IDEA that I would go down such an amazing Rabbit Hole
There are so many ways to weave the Saffron Teddy Bear.
Even though the same basic ‘recipe’ is used to weave all the bodies, using different weaving techniques and different weights of yarns makes each of the Saffron Bears totally unique.
Here are some video tutorials showing how to weave the variations of the Saffron Bear’s Body:
