How to Make a Tear Bear

Recently, I was inspired by a video on youtube produced by scrapbookingwithakic on how to make tear bears.  Tear bears are very popular right now.  In fact, tear bears are one of the most popular paper piecings for making a scrapbook and making scrapbook pages.  I've noticed a lot of people are selling tear bears online and using them when they make a scrapbook.  The tear bear is one of the easiest paper piecing patterns to use.  In the video by scrapbookingwithakic, she used mulberry paper for her paper piecing design of her tear bear.  I didn't have any mulberry paper and I didn't have any of the supplies she had used in the video.  Instead, I used white cardstock and paint in order to try and make something similar.  I've also seen stamps for teddy bears in my local craft stores.  I'm sure they can also be used for  tear bear paper piecings as well.
