Teddy Bear Making for Beginners Kit (with safety eyes & safety joints)
Learn how to make a mohair teddy bear with the Amazing Craft Bear Making for Beginners Kit and create Charlie, a 28cm, jointed, mohair teddy bear. The teddy bear kit contains a teddy bear pattern and comprehensive instruction booklet guides you through the processes to complete your bear and the kit contains all of the materials needed to make a traditional but child safe bear using mohair, safety joints & safety eyes.
The instruction booklet has been designed for anyone who can sew but the very clear instructions make it particularly good for those who have never made a teddy bear before. The teddy bear kit also contains a full size teddy bear pattern (so there is no need to enlarge it) and all of the materials you need. The re-usuable pattern is also great for creating memory teddy bears out of materials that you wish to preserve in bear form!
You can sew this bear completely by hand (back stitch is the main stitch used) or on a sewing machine (there will be a little hand sewing needed). All of the stitches needed are described in the booklet. The kit is also supported by some great ‘How to do it’ videos on our website if you prefer more visual ways of learning.
The instruction booklet also shows you how to use glass eyes and traditional cotter pin joints, should you wish to re-use your pattern and have a go at the more traditional methods in the future.
