With this pattern and tutorial you can make teddy bears our of pretty much any kind of fabric. For mine I used fleece because i wanted it to be very soft but you can use the normal animal fur fabric if you want.

The pattern I made comes with letters that indicate how to assemble but just in case I also added steps and tips.


MATERIALS:

  • 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
  • Pattern
Hope you enjoy and make your own teddy bear =)

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!

Let me know if you make it!

<p>Very beautiful bear....although very difficult to make. I'm 60 years young and have been sewing sense I was 10.

If you're using a sleeper I would print the pattern at 50% because the pieces are pretty big
Mishemell143@msn.com<br>Please email the pattern for this bear, I have looked everywhere &amp; can't even find a pattern to buy &amp; download online. I want to make a few of these for family members.
For you, I would print it out at 50% instead of 100% because the pieces are pretty big :)
