She came out cute! I made one in the round and it required no steeking, just some tweaking.
I was afraid they wouldn't accept bears in the round so I asked and she said they would as long as they look like the same bear. She asked me not to post it anywhere, but if someone asked I could share it. I guess she thought if it was free people wouldn't pay for the pattern on the Mother Bear site, but it's free on DIY so..
So, if you want I can dig up the pattern. I got a new computer so I have it on on a CD.
ETA: if you look on my Rav page you can see the bear. She used it on the Mother Bear link, too.
