Here's the instructions and what Lisa had to say about Wimbley: Here's a new free pattern just for you guys! A little bear I've named Wimbley that's small enough to make up as a pin or use as a stuffie for your favorite bear or doll. I originally made him up for my Blythe dolls.
All you need to do is to click on the pattern above and save it to your computer. After you click, the pattern will enlarge. Then, just right click and "Save Image As" to save it to your computer.
To make him, you'll need a small piece of felt folded in half. Cut out your Wimbley pattern and trace it directly on to the felt. Follow the pattern lines with your sewing machine and make sure to leave an opening to turn and stuff him. I left my opening on one of the sides. Cut out your bear as close to the seams as possible to make it easier to turn his little arms and legs. Stuff him and then sew up the side. Next, give him a personality by embroidering a face and maybe a boo-boo on his arm or leg. Wimbley's a popular little guy so you want him to look well loved.
