finishing : Seam any last limbs/body parts to the bear in desired placement if you haven't already. Weave in any last yarn ends. Now you're ready to embroider face! Using French knots or two black beads, embroider eyes to face, directly above the snout. To embroider nose and mouth, use a scrap of black yarn and use the following picture as a guide:

The brown circle is the snout and the black lines are the lines of embroidery to make mouth. Last but not least, add any last finishing touches, like a ribbon around its neck or a bow on top of its head. Tada! You now have a cute and cuddly teddy bear!
