My sewing room bear has rare earth magnets (not included) in his paws so he can grab your needles, seam ripper, and small scissors. He has a story, which you can read on the pattern back in the pictures here. Like any good home made bear, you will grow more fond of him with passing years, because he has that "certain something"
I've included a photo of him made from boro stitched fabric. Directions to boro stitch are not included but if you stitch the fabrics first and then cut them from the stitched fabrics, that's pretty much all there is to it :-)
You could substitute sewing bag closure magnets for the rare earth magnets.
