3 - Cut the sock in order to create the ears and legs:

- the top, where you just cut the elastic, will become the legs.
Cut about 3 to 4 cm making a U shape..

- the bottom, on the toes' side, will become the ears of your teddy.
Cut about 1,5 à 2 cm diagonally on each side and straight at the bottom
to create the top of the head of your teddy.

5 - Sew the legs entirely, then sew only the extremity of the ears
and leave the top of the head open so you can stuff the wad through there and fill your teddy.

7 - It's the step where you stuff your teddy with the wad:

Stuff your teddy with the wad, and make sure there you stuff every bit of it, until the bottom of the legs to the top of the ears. The wad can settle over time, don't hesitate to make a puffy teddy.

9 - Place the arms of your teddy with a pin

(you know, these needles with a flat or coloured round head, that are used to maintain 2 pieces of fabric together) on eahc side. The arms of your teddy are symbolic, they will not be separated like the legs. You need to pinch both sides of the teddy to create the arms.

10 - Once you're happy with the result, you just need to sew the arms, but don't forget
to make sure that you are sewing both sides of the teddy together.
