Saturday May 4th  Tiny Teddy  Tutor: Josie Slack  
The teddy bear is about 3 inches tall, and is jointed. The class will focus mainly on construction and participants will learn one specific stitch for the external seams. You can embroider the teddy later. The class will be 2 hours.
Needs List:. We will be making the larger of the two teddies who is around 5cm/3inches high in plain felt and has joints. 
Please bring a piece of synthetic felt ( the cheap type from Spotlight)   matching thread   pencil or pen/ disappearing ink one is good   usual kit and scissors.  Some stuffing, just a tight ball big enough for your hand is enough. 
Josie will have some supplies available so don't buy stuffing especially for this project as only a small amount is needed.
