1. Begin by drawing a circle. This will form the bear's head.
2. Draw two smaller, partial circles at the top of the original circle. These will form the bear's ears. Inside each ear, sketch a circular shape using a series of short, curved, overlapping lines. This details the inside of the ear and gives it a furry appearance.
3. Draw a heart. Allow the top of the heart to overlap the bottom of the head.
4. Erase the guide line from the heart.
5. Draw an oval overlapping the heart. This will form the bear's paw. Notice that short lines were used on one side to give it a furry appearance. Using a series of curved lines, sketch in the arm. Note the curved lines that form the bend of the elbow. Erase guide lines as necessary.
6. Sketch in another oval above and behind the heart, forming the other paw. Again, note the furry overlapping lines. Use a long line for the arm and shoulder. Notice the short lines indicating fur near the neck.
7. Draw two more furry circles, indicating the bear's feet. Connect them using a long, curved line. Then, use short lines to indicate the joints of the legs to the bear's body.
8. Sketch a furry circle at the bottom of the head. This will be the bear's snout. Draw a curved, upside down triangle at the top of the snout, forming the nose. Add shine to the nose using a small oval. Draw a straight line downward from the nose, and join it to a large, "U" shaped smile. For each eye, draw a small circle surrounding a smaller circle, and shade between the two. Finally, use short lines to indicate fur near the top of the head.
9. Draw a trail of short lines parallel to the outline of the heart, indicating stitches. Write the words "I Love You" across the heart.
10. Color your bear. Early teddy bears were brown, but today they may resemble black bears, polar bears, pandas, or even come in a rainbow of colors. Hearts, too, are typically depicted in shades of pink or red, but the choice is yours.

According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica , the cross is "the principal symbol of the Christian religion." Millions of people wear a cross on a necklace or employ the cross in body art or to decorate their homes, vehicles, or clothing.
The cross as a symbol has a long history spanning numerous non-Christian religions. Simple X or + marks are found in prehistoric cave drawings. In ancient Egypt, the cross-like ankh or crux ansata - translated "cross with a handle - was often depicted in the hand of the pharaoh or of various deities. It was used both as a fertility symbol and to represent life. W. E. Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words also notes that the cross or t was used as a symbol for the Chaldean god Tammuz.
For 300 years after the founding of Christianity, there is no historical evidence of the use of this symbol in worship. It came into popularity when promoted by Roman Emperor Constantine, between 306 and 337 A.D. Throughout the Middle Ages in Europe, the cross was used as a religious symbol. The design, for example, adorned the shields of knights and crusaders. The cross also appears in much of the religious artwork from the sixth century onward, appearing in paintings, on the cover and pages of religious texts, and in architecture, especially of churches.
