Miniature travelling teddy

I wanted to make something extra special for Joe for his birthday, something that he can treasure and be just for him. After putting my thinking cap on, I came up with the Travelling Teddy.

The Travelling Teddy lives in his own tin that kinda looks like a suitcase. He has a mattress & a quilt - no pillow because he is flat!

He is a very clever Teddy, he can even make his own bed!

...but wait, did you notice something....  I made my very own quilt!  Yes!!!!  It's so small that it fits into the palm of my hand but hey, we all have to start somewhere!   I used the quilt-as-you-go technique and need to work on how to attach the back of the binding edge especially the corners.

In case you want to make Travelling Teddy too, you could try a tin like this with a sliding top or if you were something with a cute design on it then you can't go past this one!
