Roly-Poly Stuffed Bear

I made this little guy for a gift for one of our friends. He was so cute I almost didn’t want to give him away! 🙂 I found this great tutorial with templates for making the round felt sphere part of him, and once you make the sphere you can customize it to be anything you want! Here’s the link to the tutorial on how to sew the pieces together (the actual tutorial part is towards the bottom of the post) And here’s the link to the template – it’s down near the bottom of the page under “Sewing Patterns” #14:

And now for a photoshoot!

This last picture shows him with a necklace I made that I also included in the gift. Doesn’t he look like he’s wearing earbuds or something?

Don’t you just want to squeeze him?!



Polymer Clay Jewelry


You’ve already seen that you can make cute animals from polymer clay.  There are lots of other neat things you can make with it too.  Such as jewelry.

The doughnuts and the camera shown here were made from polymer clay.  I inserted a loop of wire into the clay before I baked it.

These are the doughnut earrings.  I inserted little metal rings into those green wire loops I made.  I used a needle-nose pliers to open and close the rings.

I made this necklace for my aunt for her birthday.  The tiny beads are seed beads, and the bigger clear beads are just… beads.  The beads are strung onto thin wire.


And that’s it!  The brand of polymer clay I use is “Craft Smart”, and it comes from Michaels.  So did the beads, the earring forms, and the metal rings.  All of the supplies are pretty inexpensive too.  So get crafting!
