Teddy Roosevelt

The construction of Teddy is complete! and boy is he cute!

The knitting was straight forward and fast, but all of these little pieces were a little intimidating.

I sewed the seams while Brian did the stuffing. In the beginning, Teddy looked a lot more like Miss Piggy with his big snout. I also had quite the time sewing the neck and legs on correctly. I placed the legs too far forward, then angled incorrectly, and finally with his hips near the butt like they ought to be.

When all was said and done, he turned out alright. I wish I could've used buttons for the eyes, but they would be quite the choking hazard....for Brian.

Brian says this is the best thing I've ever knit. That's what he used to say about the Santa hat, but apparently the hat has been demoted.
