Notes from Sayjai (the translator)

- I have translated this pattern, but have not made the bear myself. My apology for not being able to answer questions on how to make this bear.
- The original pattern does not have notes on how to assemble the body parts. It also does not describe the embroidery. But this is pretty straightforward: you sew everything together. You can see how the mouth and eyes are embroidered on the photos.

Hi, thank you very much for posting and sharing this pattern. I am having trouble trying to figure out how to piece the ears together. The outer ear and the inner ear don't seem to fit together. Can you post some pictures of your teddy's ears, and impart some insight as to how you stitched them?
Many thanks,
Danielle
