Testing Completed


--- Testing is completed---


This pattern is now for sale in my Etsy Store and on Ravelry.






Biff is ready for testing! I’m so happy to have reached this point (a little nervous, too).

Shall I introduce you?
It’s a hard life for a Teddy Bear. You get chewed on. You get cried on. You get sat on. You get left behind the couch for weeks on end. Sometimes you even get left at the park for weeks on end. And let’s not get started on family pets. It’s a hard life and, boy, does Biff know it. He’s got the scars to prove it. Believe it or not he used to be a happy, huggable bear. Now he’s just angry. You give him a hug and you’ll find your stomach being pummelled by his soft crochet fists – funny thing is, it just makes you want to hug him even more.



Calling all testers!
I am hoping some of you will want to test Biff for me. I need 3 or 4 testers. To be a tester all I would need from you would be a link to Ravelry, Flickr or some site where I could see some of your crocheted work. This is just to check that you do crochet not to assess your skill or anything like that. All skill levels are welcome! I’ll list the details of what will be required of you and of the pattern below and if you’re interested, send me an email at woollytoons@gmail.com.

What you get in the email
The body of the email will contain a simple nine question survey that you will need to complete after you finish the pattern. The pattern will come as a 2.4 MB, PDF attachment to the email.

Time Limit
The deadline is July 15 but this is flexible.
