It is easyer to make the Bear than you think. To help you make it, I made a detailed sew along video tutorial for the Bear. In the tutorial, I explain with great detail all the steps in making "the Bear" with turned edges. There are three steps in this applique assembly - turning the edges of the Bear body, belly and face with interfacing. Then, I show a simple technique to turn the edges of a tiny nose using fusible web. And finally, I go through the machine embroidery of the arms, the eyes and the mouth and stitch all the parts together.
You can also make the Bear using raw edge machine applique technique. For that, check out our detailed step by step guide to raw edge applique with fusible web that also includes a video tutorial.
Thus, if you want to make the Bear - you will! Just sew along with me ;)
