Operation Teddybear

Teddybears live innocuous yet ubiquitous lives without almost anyone having a concept of how complicated (physically as opposed to emotionally) they truly are.

Recently, I had the opportunity to get a hands-on experience with our fluffy friends. I learned just how many small pieces of fabric it takes to make something that seems so simple. These teddybears were made from long sleeve shirts using the shirt buttons for eyes.

In the middle of this project, I also learned about the curious origin of the teddybear through a really great podcast. If you’ve never heard of Billy Possum, you should check it out.
