I designed this Jointed Teddy Bear for the fabulous Crafts Beautiful UK magazine in Summer 2014 and I am happy to be sharing it with you.
This sewing pattern will show you how to make a 35cm tall jointed teddy bear with contrasting fabric for the ears and matching bag. The teddy is made using straight machine stitching, a few small darts for shaping and hand embroidered face. The arms and legs are attached to the body with ‘Teddy Joints’ and stuffed with polyester soft toy stuffing through small openings which are hand stitched closed. Matching buttons and a ‘cross the body’ bag complete the project.
The pattern is 20+ pages long and suitable for anyone who has experience of using a sewing machine. All the instructions are written in simple text with more than 40 close up photographs to show you every step of the way.
Materials needed for one teddy: • 80 x 80cms lightweight cotton fabric for main Teddy body. • 10 x 30cms piece of contrasting cotton for ear linings and bag. • A very small piece of iron-on interfacing (medium weight) for ears • Matching thread. • 4 Teddy Bear Joints (available in most craft shops) • Black embroidery thread for eyes and nose. • Small buttons and bow for decoration. • 1 press stud for bag. • Small bag (200g) of polyester soft toy stuffing.
You will also need some basic sewing equipment such as scissors, iron, tape measure, pins, needle and a fabric marker or tailors chalk.
I hope you have lots of fun making these soft cuddly teddies and would love you to join us over on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/LillyBlossom/198273526881067
