Piecing her together . . .

Well, Catherine Bear is now closer to be a real toy. According to Ravelry, I started her in December of 2008. All of her pieces have been done for a while. It took me about 6-7 hours the other night to sew up all her pieces and stuff her. Next time I will figure out how to do her mostly in the round. :)

Now I just need to embroider her face and piece her together. I will admit, she turned out to be quite a large bear. I don't think I checked her size before I made her. :)

Point of consideration though. . . Since she is knitted, should her clothing be sewn?


  1. Wow. See... that's why I don't like knitting toys. All that finishing work...

    I think she'd be lovely with whatever clothes you make, but fabric would add another texture...

  2. I love it, I think fabric to would look really good, what talent you have !!!

  3. You might want to check out Ysolda Teague's toys. I knit her Elijah elephant, and you just pick up stitches and knit on the limbs. Much easier than sewing (though possibly less comfortable to knit...I found it a little unwieldy to work with so many flailing arms and legs).
