Love to Sew: Teddy Bears by Monika Schleich
Love to Sew Teddy Bears is a fabulous book that has been written by expert teddy bear creator, Monika Schleich. This fabulous book contains 16 teddy bear patterns to make and treasure. The bears in the book are all made from mohair but they could equally be made from any other non-stretch fabric that takes your fancy. The bears range in size from a tiny 13cm bear to a 35cm bear. There is also a charming brooch project and key ring project too.
The book contains full instructions, photographs and full sized, pull out paper patterns.
The projects use a variety of sized glass eyes but the most frequently used sizes are 4mm, 6mm and 8mm black glass eyes.
The projects also use a variety of sizes of cotter pin joints but the most frequently used are 20, 30 and 45mm cotter pin joints.
Monika suggests using the traditional teddy bear fabric, mohair, and each project also uses white felt to high light the teddy’s eyes.
