Introduction: Teddy Bear Tutorial and Pattern
The pattern I made comes with letters that indicate how to assemble but just in case I also added steps and tips.
- 1 yard of fabric for the body ( I used cream color fleece)
- 1/2 yard of fabric for the color details ( I used light brown)
- 1 set of animal eyes 18mm
- small piece of felt for the nose
- Stuff material ( I used polyester filling )
- Sewing machine
Step 1: Template
The fist this is to download the pattern, print it and cut each piece.
Then you need to trace all of your pieces on the fabric.
For all of those that say you need 2, 1 reverse; after tracing the front, turn the pattern and trace the second piece.
Step 2: Sewing the Head
I recommend to start with the ears, once you have them done attach them to the front and side part of the face.
Repeat the step and make sure the color of the ears is on the inside part.
After attaching the back, proceed to sew the moth, first to the head piece and after that sew the front.
Step 3: Sewing the Body
Cut the pieces and start with the front, just like the first picture.
Sew the arms before attaching to the front body, pin the parts to make sure everything fits properly.
For the feet repeat the process and pin all the pieces together before sewing, sometimes it can be an overflow of fabric in this area depending on the kind of fabric you are using.
Make sure you assemble the tail and place it before closing the back.
Step 4: Stuff the Body and Get the Face Done
Stuff the body and set it to a side so you can finish the face.
Proceed to attach the eyes, and pin the mouth to stitch it together.
I Fold the very bottom of the mouth to shape a lip and then make two stitches on each side (Same place the pin is)
After that mark his nose with a stitch from the lips to the nose, this is how the back looks like after being done.
For mine I used a piece of felt to shape the nose, sew all the way around and your Teddy Bear’s face is done.
Step 5: Sew Together
Stuff the head and sew it to the body of your teddy bear and you're DONE! You can add a bow, tie or just anything to make it even more pretty!
Hope you enjoy this project!
