OCC Barton on Humber are having a teddy bear puppet appeal.....
They are hoping to break the world record of teddies in a line. To break the record they need more than 15534 teddy puppets and the deadline to return knitted puppets is the 18th September. The puppets will then find there way into shoe boxes, as OCC stands for Operation Christmas Child, a charity which sends filled shoe boxes to needy children round the world.

If you are interested in knitting up a few teddies, here is the pattern, a nice easy knit.
My pattern notes
I knitted the front and back in one piece.
I started and ended the puppet with two by two rib.
I embroidered the face before turning inside out and sewing the side seams as I thought it was easier.
My scarves were I-cord.

Thanks to Linda's Crafty Corner for bringing the teddy appeal to my notice and I'm hoping to spread the word as well.
Till next time, Ali.
