Besides Tatting lessons yesterday, we looked through my cousin's piles of Inspirations Magazines. It is the most gorgeous, inspiring magazine from Australia for embroidery enthusiasts. Simply Gorgeous. Filled with so many beautiful things to create. They publish books and A-Z manuals too. Paula brought me the pattern to make this elephant (it's about 7" long x 4" when finished)!
It's totally fine that we're not finishing our bears right away. My mom had already bought me an Inspirations Magazine that contained the pattern and instructions for this bear (above). Then she decided to make one too. She has hers cut and sewn already. She's thinking that our sampler bears will be a great place to practice our stitches for this and my elephant.
