No Parachutes or Safety Nets Here

While deciding to forfeit some of my College European History homework, I attempted to sew a bear from a pattern I created. Never again. Not only did it come out horribly wrong (I can't even begin to describe it), but I spent a precious amount of time creating this monstrosity of a teddy bear.

Due to this failure (I'll have to try again when my hopes aren't so crushed), I'm going to post some pictures of the cards I make.

I find inspiration, draw it out, and hand-cut the pieces. The one below was inspired by Noah Biorkman, a 5-year-old boy dying of cancer. He passed in November after celebrating an early Christmas with his family.
