As promised, here are a few more pictures with the quilled teddy bear: back and side view.
This little guy is only 4.5 cm tall, that is about 1 1/2″. I used 160g/sm paper because I knew lighter paper would mean more fringing. I am going to try some 80g/sm paper for my next project of this type, just to see if I can make the quilled toy look more fluffy.
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!
