Working on Teddy Bear Bag
Here's the bag I'm working on now. (Amy Gaines' Amigurumi Bear Purse Pattern.) After the cupcake drawstring bag - I learned that 4 yr olds will pull out the drawstrings and repeatedly ask that you replace them. So I nixed the drawstring and knitted a sturdier wristlet handle instead. I also chose not to add the flowers to my bear so that it looks more rustic. I made the bag a tad smaller and the ears much smaller as I like small ears on a teddy bear. Plus, my daughter thought that the bigger ears made it look like a monkey, not a bear. I had to actually learn how to sew seams, sew pieces together, and to embroider satin stitch and blanket stitch. I learned quite alot on this project. I'm just waiting for the safety eyes to arrive in the mail so that I can apply them to the bag.

S/He is adorable! It's amazing how much of a difference adding the eyes makes from one photo to the next!
