Easter is only 4 days away (or 5 if you count Sunday) which means it’s now time to be seriously thinking about your kiddos Easter baskets. When I was a kid we got Easter eggs of course but we also got things like books, a new outfit or something we could cherish. Easter was never just about chocolate for us, it was more about family and being grateful for what we have been given. We may not be a family that attends church every Sunday but we believe and I think that is okay too. So for today’s tutorial I’m sharing a little project that you can whip up while watching television and pop in the kids Easter basket for something other than chocolate. It’s my Do-It-Yourself Cuddly Teddy Bear!
I made this little teddy in a few hours and I hand stitched everything but it could be made a lot quicker if you used a machine for certain things. I used a combination of hand stitching and hot gluing for certain things but really this little cutie came together quite quickly and it was something fun to do while watching television at night. I love the fact that she’s not perfect, she’s a little crooked and her smile isn’t perfectly straight but I love her and she is cute and cheery and any little kiddo would love her all the same. Kids don’t care about how much something costs or that it doesn’t look perfect they love things with all their hearts and enjoy the gifts they receive and that is truly beautiful. So let’s make ourselves a Cuddly Teddy Bear!
