Bear Blunder

I recently received a new book in the mail - Knitted Toys by Zoe Mellor. I immediately found a project that I liked and could use up some of my stash on. A striped Teddy Bear named "Flat Ted." I cast on right away and had most of the knitting done in two days. Then I made quite a blunder while seaming.
I thought the whole project was lost until I looked over the photos of the beginning. The stripes DID match up so ...what happened?!?!
Now I'll have to redo the seam- but I guess that's better than redoing the whole thing. I think I will knit the arms in the round to avoid seaming! I used Caron simply soft in Mint and White on size 6 needles.
