In this class you will assemble a one-of-a-kind stuffed animal while learning the basics of hand embroidery along the way. Using a variety of quality upcycled fabrics we will piece together a totally unique Teddy Bear. You will learn up to five embroidery stitches, which will then be applied to designing your bear’s face and lovable belly. Join us to create a custom plush toy to treasure or gift to someone you love.
