Teddy Bear without Gypsy or Design Studio

I came across this lovely bear (or a similar one) at Cooking with Cricut. I just loved it and wanted to figure it out!
(it might be the Taurus in me, he he...yeap, I can be stubborn, I mean persistent, I mean determined!)


I you are interested this is what I did:
CUT
Using GEORGE cart-
Circle 2" - Head
Balloon 2 x 1.25" (1 1/4)- Ears
Balloon 2 x .75" (3/4) - Hands
Oval 1.5" (1 1/2) - Face
Oval  .75" (3/4) - Nose
Oval 2 x  .5" (1/2) - Eyes
 Using EVERY DAY PAPER DOLL cart- pg 42
Rain coat at 2 x 6"  (it doesn't have to be a raincoat, it can be anything you want)
Umbrella 2 x 6" (two colors)
Hat 5"  (the 6" hat was too big-- you can make his head bigger? and the 4" was too small)
Shoes 6"
HAND CUTS
I cut the small rectangle for the neck and two thinner rectangles for the legs by hand (you can use GEORGE) and hand cut the sleeves on the raincoat to place them differently than EveryDayPaperDoll has it (reason for cutting 2 rain coats - but you can just trace on a piece of same card stock- just an idea?)

I inked everything with distress walnut-
Used pink chalk for the cheeks, ears and hands-
Signo white for eyes and nose-
Sharpie black to draw eyes (black part)
Sharpie brown for stitching

You can see in the picture above how I cut different sizes 'till I was happy with the fit.
