I'm working on the design for my little boy's first birthday and I'd like to make a standing (or maybe sitting) teddy bear. Thanks to some of the posters here, I have a good idea how to do the legs/body etc.
I plan to screw two dowels into a piece of plywood for the base and legs. I'll screw another board to the top of them for the body. I think the body will be about 4-5 inches high so I'll need another support for the head. Do I just do a center dowel for the body and screw another smaller board to the top for the head?
Finally, what's the best way to attach the arms? I was thinking of doing them in modeling chocolate around some kind of armature but I'm open to other ideas. How do I make and attach the armature
A few folks here have sent me the Elmo link which helped quite a bit it doesn't seem to have a ton of support through the body and head.
Look at the Cake Study armature by Bronwen and Francois at
Maybe you can do something kinda like that
Thanks. For some reason, the link it's working for me. I tried a search on GSA and google with no luck. It sounds promising though. Is there somewhere else I can find it?
