Take a Quill Pill Challenge 12: Quilling for Kids – Quilled Teddy Bear

It’s time for a new challenge on Take a Quill Pill! This month’s theme is Quilling for Kids. It can be a card, a bookmark, a photo frame or anything else.

When Piyu told me what the theme was, the first thing that popped into my head was a plush toy. Kids love those! And I remember that when I was little my very first toy of this kind was a blue teddy bear. So I did my best to try and recreate it using paper strips. I had to do a lot of fringing for this, but, except for that, the project was easy and fun to make. I was in a hurry when I made the toy, I barely had time to buy those funny googly eyes. I feel though like he is missing a nose, so now I am trying to find a very, very small bead.

I hope you like my quilled teddy bear!

Make sure to check the blog to see some other great inspiring designs from my DT coleague, Suganthi.

Hope you will take part in this challenge! Happy Quilling!

    And I can imagine HOW much time you’ve spent cuting the fringes %)
