This teddy bear was just so cute and it kept bothering me that I couldn't duplicate it. I then got the bright idea to take a picture and then measure the bears dimensions. So the next time I went in I went to go and get it only to find they had taken it down. I was bummed.
I was telling my mom about it and she needed to get something from that store so we ran over. Guess what I saw was back?! I showed my mom and she fell in love with it too. So she whipped out her measuring tape and a piece of paper and said trace it and measure it. So she wandered the store with my son while I sat in the isle and traced it. I was so giddy about being able to do it.
So from the outline and measurements that I made of the body I created a template. First bear I did out of scraps didn't go so good. So I went back to the store to look at it again. I revamped my pattern and tested it again. The head was a little big so I quickly solved that and created this beauty:
I am so excited that I got the pattern to work. This one I sent in a package to my sister for her baby she is having this month. My mom is begging for one and so is my son. They both have tried to walk off with this one before I got it sent. I finally had to hide it so they wouldn't take it. Guess I have some work to do. Maybe for Christmas?

Here is the evidence that it fits my son. My mom and I put it on him to check the size and my dad didn't find it so funny. Hopefully my son won't hold it against me that I tried it on him and took a picture!

Also to curb some of the pumpkin craving I made these cookies from this website. I left out the nuts (not a fan) and chocolate (I am allergic to it). They still tasted great even without those two ingredients.
Love pumpkin right now!
