You will notice at the top of the faces there is a sort of "onion top" LOL..... sorry just looked at it and thought my gosh .......hehe....... basically I always do a tab instead of just leaving an opening for stuffing then as you stuff that tab folds inside and you have a nice edge to sew up plus no fraying as you stuff. The hair of course will hide this once its on and having this at the top of the head means you get a really nice finish at the chin area.
I also like to draw my faces on lightly with pencil prior to stuffing, I find it easier to get the face right by doing this. (just my preference)
This is only the start of the layering process just getting some colour on there and will build it up as I go, well hopefully, as its been a while since Ive done any faces.
I had a heck of a time getting these pictures so excuse the rough piccies, my clothes line isn't high enough so had to peg it over a couple of lines and its too dark inside to take any of it, but anyways you get the idea.
Its not wavy at all in the border and binding just the way its hanging on the line – promise LOL

Today was our monthly day out, none of us had much show and tell this time things have been a bit slow on the crafting front but we still had a good day – lots of talking and eating and drinking of coffee and tea LOL.. I took my crochet along, one of the ladies brought some knitting and the other ladies were making teddy bears so a real mixture this time.
This is the bottom of my bag, nearly there to start going up to make the sides so can hardly wait to see how its going to look
Here are some bears Elaina (sorry not sure how to spell this) has made, she is a fantastic bear maker and honestly they feel real in your hand when you pick them up, they are just weighted beautifully
Here's one that was being made on the day and Rose nearly got it finished but didn't have the right size eyes with her to do the face.
