Step 5: Filling the bear and having fun

It came up really nice and we stopped sewing when we only had a small gap left, enough to fill the Teddy bear. We actually had two choices for filling: 1. polystyrene beads; 2. polyester wadding. We choosed the polystyrene beads but wadding is also a good choice if you can afford it. After filling the Teddy bear we cleaned it up and made alot of nice pictures with it
But the original toy bear didn't have to be taken apart.You could have adapted those bear pattern off of a downloaded pattern found online or from a borrowed book from the library or something. <br> <br>But none the less that giant Tbear project is pretty cool. <br>A great thing to have around Christmas, Near a tree or snuggled up around the fireplace and a story.
Wow this would totally be a kids dream! I'm loving all your 'ables! Keep it up!
where is he now? I could give him a good home!! xx<br>
WANT<br>I just HAVE to make something like this.
I want to make this bear, but make it look like a snorlax! :0D <br>Awesome instructable!
Umm, how much does it weigh?
well, about 100 pounds...
Nice. This is a crazy project, but with an awesome result. I want one of these in my house, to use as a kind of random application furniture.
Slightly larger and I'd be willing to throw my bed out. Now you have my gears spinning, neat project.
This is awesome, thanks for sharing! He looks really fun to lounge on.
So Awesome! I would love to have a huge teddy bear like that!<br /><br />I feel a little bad for the poor little bear that had to be sacrificed for this gigantic bear to be created.
:) yeah, I know! But don't worry, I'll make it back
How did u afford all the beads?at 1st I was thinking that I could use pillow fluff then I saw I only had 3 and that wouldn't be enough to fill a leg! Must go fabric shopping<br/>
We actually use styrofoam alot and the beads were just leftovers (check out our other instructables). This was a good way to recycle.
You are so very talented
fabsome but the little guy was so cute!....
He is really awesome, if only I had room for such a sized bear, my kids would love it, :)
is there anywhere else to download the pdf? <br>and how do you print out the pattern on multiple sheets? <br>Also the parts of the bear aren't labeled
This is my instructable and I don't have it anywhere else. I used Corel for printing on multiple pages, I think you can also use paint. This instructable is more about teaching how to enlarge your own toys rather then teaching you how to make my bear. However the parts of the bear are in these order: a) leg and back, b) inner part of the leg, c) inner part of the arm, d) outer part of the arm and the parts for the nose, e) foot, f) back of the head, g) head and ear, h) belly. This is only half . For the other half you just turn the pattern.
This is just fantastic. I NEED to make one of these at some point.<br><br>One question though, if I were to buy the materials just for this, how much polystyrene would I need to buy?
We used about 20 bags of 60 litres filled with polystyrene beads.
That is so awesome!! How much roughly did it cost?
It depends on the material you use. The material we used was about 150 $ but I'm sure you can find cheaper ones. The filling didn't cost almost anything (we had alot of polystyrene beads left from our polystyrene sculptures so it was also a great way to recycle)
[the teddy bear] Hey, what was that for?!?! &gt;=[
