Fabric Teddy Bear Made with a Free Pattern.

I gave my new sewing machine a try out yesterday and made this Teddy using a free Bear pattern from

I was very pleased with how he turned out.  This morning I'm on the search for a free rabbit pattern I like 😉  I've decided to keep my week-ends free during the dark months to try my hand at different crafts.

I've brought hardly any thread in the last 30 years as I had quite a stock from when I worked in a haberdashery department when I would purchase thread when it was on Sale.

I'm slowly running out so I looked around for good thread at a good price and came across Moons Overlocking thread.  It's made by Coats so I knew it would be of a good quality.  The cheaper makes you can find are often a little fluffy and not very strong.

On eBay I found 2 x boxes one of dark and one of  pale colours,  48 spools in total for £29.95 with Free postage.  There is 1000m on each spool so I think these will last me a life time.....Bargain 😊
