Here are 2 cute bears from 10's Embroidery. Called Project Beerdie

The purple one has polyfil and the blue one has rice for a heat pack.
I had downloaded the design some time ago and rediscovered it on my backup disc last week.
The design is still available, but not on the main download page, link is below for current location. It opens a new window where the download link is highlighted green.
If you make it I recommend stretch fabric as it helps when turning it out for it to sit well. The opening is quite small in the small sizes so I used a funnel for the heat pack bear and some haemostats for the other one to get all the stuffing in

So cute, thank you for including the link.
I have never done the rice before. Do you have to use a certain kind?

Thank you. I usually use long grain rice as I have plenty in my pantry, but you can use whatever rice you have. Some people use wheat too. I have heard of someone trying corn but then after warming the heat pack they ended up with popcorn!

These are very cute. I think I may use them for a pay it forward project I heard about, along with a homeless project I am collecting donations for.

Sewmum1 did you have any problems downloading and unzipping the files? I downloaded the free Winzip that was offered to download this project. The Winzip changed all of my zipped folders in my File Manager previously zipped and unzipped with 7Zip File Manager. Also the file only had DST and PES Formats. What converter program did you use to convert the Format? I need HUS.

I would like to follow Sewmum1 and some others but I don't know how. Could anyone help me with that?
