Hi Busymomof7 (wow!!! 7???? I want 7 too...or 12) Anyways...I have never seen the photo of the book in the first post either. She must not have inserted it right into the post but I know which book she is talking about.

 

Here is the pattern book for it. Let me know if you can't see it that way. :)

Your link took me right to a picture of the book!:cheer Also, it is a little reassuring to know that I am not the only one who did not see a picture in the original post that started this thread! Maybe I am not quite as inept as I thought!! ;)

Not sure if this CAL is still going on, but I started the Cheer Bear today. I'm going to work on the bears while Beth is in school and give them to her for Christmas. I have done one, last year, Share Bear, I have kits for all the Bears, it was just a lack of motivation. I got about half the head done today!:cheer

 

Here's a pic of my Share Bear:

All my stuff is in storage right now, including all my yarn and books. I had to stop in the middle of a bear, but I plan to get back to them soon.

I'm having so much fun looking at all these adorable care bears that I just HAD to share the one I made, even though I'm not officially a part of the CAL. This is Bedtime Bear.

I have started my bear, I'm making Share Bear. I made it to rnd 15, but had to take out rnd 14, because I didn't really read the instructions. It said to slip stitch in 2 stitches, and I thought it meant to decrease. Butterfly, I bought my book at Walmart, I hope that helps.:hook

What cute bears everyone has made! I'm new here and wanted to ask a question. I've made 2 care bears as gifts, and both times their eyes turned out "creepy" - for lack of a better word. Even a friend agreed. Here is a picture of the one I made for my daughter. Any eye tips? Thanks! carebear.jpg

Just wanted to post an update on my share bear. I'm still having a little trouble with my bear. I made it to round 18, and realized when I took rnd 14 out, I took out too many stitches, had to rip the whole thing out, and start over again. I'm back to rnd 17, and hope that I don't make anymore mistakes.:oops

Population, I don't think your bears eyes are creepy, I think your bear is cute.:clap

Population 800, I don't think your bear's eyes are creepy either. What I did when I made my bear's eyes was, I photocopied the page of the pattern where the eyes are then cut them out and traced them onto cardboard, which I then also cut out.

 

Then I used the cardboard templates to cut out the pieces of felt. When I put the eyes together, I closely followed the placement on the picture on the pattern book. I saved the cardboard templates for the next time I make a bear.

 

It's a bit of work, but I think it was worth it. :lol Hope this helps!

Linda, hang in there. I can't tell you how many times I had to frog the face before it finally clicked for me. I found some parts of the pattern confusing -- not because it was poorly written. I guess I just wasn't getting it. I actually contacted Customer Service at Leisure Arts for clarification. They were very helpful and finally helped me get through my brain spaz. :yes

Thanks alot Belant, I'll keep working on it, and thanks for the tip about the eyes, I never would have thought of that.

belant, what an excellant tip about using cardboard! I detest trying to cut tiny little circles out of felt, and I'm sure using sturdy cardboard versus tracing paper will make it much easier next time. Thanks!

You're welcome, ladies. Hope my tip helps. I tried it with tracing paper too, and it was driving me crazy.
