I dont like embroidering noses on my bears;
is there another option?
Yes, a child safety nose is an option. You can use either an animal
nose or a triangular nose. When sewing the two side heads together,
stitch the first 1/4, then leave a 1/8 space to place
the post of the nose and finish sewing the side head seam. Before
jointing the bear, insert the nose through the space you left and
snap on the lock washer inside the bears head. Another good
option is a covered triangle nose
, which is
simple but not plastic looking.
