To Assemble

To assemble the legs and arms fold each piece in half and sew along the edge leaving a gap to fill with stuffing. Fill each piece with stuffing and continue to sew along the edge to close the gap.

Before sewing and stuffing the body sew the legs to the bottom edge. Fold the body in half and sew the open edges closed. Leave a gap and fill the body with stuffing. If you are using safety eyes, position the eyes, finish stuffing the body and sew together the gap.

Position the arms and sew them onto the body to finish your square bear. Counting from the bottom position arms between row 16 and 18. Using a contrasting yarn sew a nose and mouth.

I hope you enjoyed making your adorable Square Bear. Try different types of yarns and hook sizes to see what you can make.
