I Love a Challenge

A "needle turn" applique teddy the easy way (for me)! A bit of thought went into this one - especially the inner corners (nose - see pink arrow below, and feet - see above). But a bit of gathering, a snip here, a tuck there and a tiny piece of vliesofix to prevent fraying, and "voila"!
There's a bear in there!
The dodgy parts of the curves will ease out during the stitching process (green arrows) - I'm hoping to see lovely smooth curves when it's done!
Now the next test is to design a needle turn bear wearing clothes!
P.S. I'm avoiding the obvious. I should be designing. "Playing" doesn't pay the bills!
