Disaster stuck today urgghhh!!
Its first time I made a white bear!!
I used gel pen.. red or blue to outline the pattern onto the fabric. Thats what I do.. and I sew on that outline..
when I turn them over to start stuffing.. blue line can be seen urrrrrrggghhhhh!!!! (dont happen with other colour.. only this one because its white)
I dont know how you do.. but what do you do about white bears?? I prefer to sew on the line as its easier for me and my eyes!!!
what can I use instead help!!!
hehe, depends on what you are doing. I crochet most of my mini bears with alot of different types of thread, but I don't think that's what you meant by this question. For thread jointing I use upholstery thread. For crocheting the bear itself I usually use punch needle thread, perle thread, tatting thread, lace weight yarns, etc. For attaching eyes again I use upholstery thread. For facial expressions I use embroidery threads.
Hope this is what you were looking for.
which upholstery threads you use??
I use embroisdery thread (DMC) for noses...
Last time I used eBay to sell some stuff from the house.. they charge me load!! They quoted me this.. I paid for them via paypal.. That was fine.... then later on (1 month later) they invoice me for more money.. thats why I stay away from eBay for selling..
In fact I looked through eBay for some bears.. I found no handmade artist bears on for sale
I dont think I have introduce myself properly!!
I have just got make making teddies after a few years break because of teacher training at Uni.
I have started go to craft fairs and promting my bears.. I got to look into website where I can sell my bears.. I not keen with eBay.. scare me!!
I have my own facebook..
I dont understand this (my English not that brilliant!!)

I have looked at Custom website.. way over my head as It only mention alcohol and fags... nothing about fabric.. I must have overlook something.
Can someone explain how this work?? I am hoping to order lots of fabric.. but thinking about how much order to pay before I make separate order..
I am in England UK
Thank you so much Dilu! :hug:
