The Teddy Bear I made this time is very girly and romantic, I used a very pretty floral fabric that I bought at JoAnn a while ago. When I saw the fabric, I fell in love immediately. At that time, I didn't have any project in my mind, I just bought it because I think it is pretty. It turns out this fabric makes a "Beautiful Teddy Bear".

I also tried a new techniques on this Teddy Bear, I embroidered the nose instead of sewing a button. To be honest, it is very challenging! I am never good at hand sewing or any kind of embroidery. I really need more practice on hand embroidery.

For decoration, I just used a hot pink ribbon and a brass heart (embellishment for scrapbook). I used glue gun to attach the heart on the ribbon, it works pretty well.
