Teddy Bear Multi-Strip Quilled Technique




You will need glue and paper the color of the bear and an alternative color. I also use a BBQ skewer to roll the paper around.

Cut 2 strips in brown or white (depending on color of bear) down the length of the paper
Cut 1 strip length in another color (for example: blue for boys or pink for girls) down the length of the paper
These pieces will be looped three times with the middle loop the longest

Glue the strips at one end


Form a loop but pull 2 of the strips down to make the loop open up and make layers. Glue the ends of the loop.

Create a second loop slightly larger than the next and make layers again. Glue the ends of the loop.



Make a final loop at the same size as the first loop. Glue the ends of the loop.

Wrap the remaining length all the way around the loop creating a large loop and glue it in place.




Cut the excess off. Take the colorful piece of extra and cut it half. Quill both small pieces for eyes. Pinch at one end to create a tear shape.

Cut 1 strip down the shorter width the color of the bear and cut in half for the ears.
Cut 1 strip down the length in bear color for the head.
Cut 2 strips down the shorter width the color of the bear for the feet.
Cut 2 strips down the sorter width the color of the bear for the arms- pinch when quill is glued to make it tear shaped.
