I finally got around to making some new soft toys this past weekend. These are simple little toys you could make as a great gift for a little one - you can make them geared for a boy or girl just by choosing the base fabric.
The differences between Bear and Pup are the placement of their ears and also the length of their legs - Bear has short legs and Pup has longer legs.
I hand appliquéd their faces and for the eyes I used small buttons I already had in my collection of 'extras' from clothes I have collected over the years.
The paws are simply a little back stitch.
