Studio Friday theme is By Accident. Tine says:
Whatever it may be that goes wrong from time to time be sure to embrace it and see it as the adventure and discovery that it actually is.
I made this teddy friend without a pattern, but from a picture I saw online when I first started to surf on crafty sites. I fell in love with a picture, and wanted to make a similar bear for me… But no luck, since there were no skills.
I actually made him about two years ago now, and I have had him in a box in the closet with fabrics until now.
I was angry, and disappointed. I knocked his head around. I named him Urban.
His ears was not big enough to show on the outside, his seams ripped open as I tried to turn the fabric (because I forgot about the importance of seam allowance) and the body and head is way too small once turned, not at all what I had in mind.
And what the heck is up with the rabbit teeth?
I hope he will make you smile, because he now makes me laugh. I could make a better bear now, I think. I’ve learned a lot since I made this thing by accident. I was trying something I had no clue how to execute or finish… Accidentally trying something, even though you don’t know how, is actually a great way to challenge yourself!
I think trying and experimenting is a great way to learn, even if it takes a couple of years to really get the lesson, or at least be willing to try again…
