Hair on a teddy bear [Help]

I have been working with particles lately and I decided to work on this bear. Can anyone give me some tips on how to make the fur for this bear or what I am doing wrong? ( ) This is currently what i have, I have been using a tutorial for the fur. The guy from the tutorial used “interpolated” children particles which seemed to work great on his bear, but when I used “interpolated” for my children particles they turn into squares of particles.

Thanks! Any input is appreciated.

EDIT: Also why are the particles not appearing on some of the faces?

Take a look at your emitter set up.

Try to slect all faces and then press Ctrl+N or Ctrl+Shift+N to swap the faces. Then it should work.
