  • How to make a bear plushie. Astronaut Bear - Step 8
    Step 8

    Sew the ears onto the head, and the head onto the body. Sew eyes, nose and a mouth with black acrylic yarn.

    Sew one end of the tubing onto the back of the backpack. I used an embroidery needle and white thread for this job. Sew the finished Backpack on the back of the bear.

    Sew the royal blue yarn on Chris’ arms and legs through the back loop stitches. Those stitches should be raised and visible making it easier to sew. Embroider a Canadian flag on Chris’ left arm. Now sew the arms and legs to the body.

  • Step 9

    Fold the Small Front pack in half (long ways). Sew black markings on the Small Front Pack. Sew the other end of the grey tubing beside the black markings. Sew it onto the front of bears' body.
