CHERRY

Using red embroidery floss,

R2: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sts)

R34: Sc 12

Stuff cherry gently.

R5: *Dec 1*, rep 6 times. (6 sts)

Fasten off and hide ends.  Loop brown embroidery floss through a stitch on the top.  Knot ends together and snip off.  Sew or glue cherry onto head.

Adding details:

Cut out circular piece of white felt and sew nose onto felt with brown embroidery floss.  Attach felt nose to face by sewing or using a glue gun.

Place mini cupcake bear in cupcake liner.  Cut the cupcake liner to an appropriate size if needed (if it is too big, then the face will be covered).  Put stuffing on bottom of cupcake liner if you want the bear to be slightly raised.  Squeeze glue along the inside of the cupcake liner.  Place mini cupcake bear inside and press firmly.

And there you have it!  A pattern to combine two of my loves: cupcakes and teddy bears!
