Amazing Craft – Sewing Buttercup Teddy Bear Pattern
Sew Buttercup Bear with the Amazing Craft’s comprehensive and clear instruction booklet and teddy bear pattern. Buttercup, who stands 24cm tall, is just waiting to be someone’s forever friend! Buttercup is made with safety eyes and safety joints making her suitable for a child to play with and she can sewn by machine or by hand. The 10 page instruction booklet has clear instructions to guide you through the entire process and is supported with our online videos should you prefer a more visual way to learn.
Buttercup Bear looks lovely made from mohair and mini stoffe ear inserts but you can also make her from a fabric of your choice (non-stretchy fabrics work best with this pattern).
If you are a visual learner, we have instructional videos on our website plus, Buttercup was demonstrated on The Sewing Quarter in March 2019 and you can find lots of helpful tips in the last hour of the show here.
