Supplies:

*1/2 yard of fleece

*Felt for contrast

*Buttons

*Embroidery floss

*Poly fill stuffing

*Pattern from below

Step 1: Cut out pieces from pattern and cut fabric.

Step 2: Sew on eye, nose, and belly to front body piece

Step 3: Sew on little ears to big ear fronts

Step 4: Embroider the mouth with black embroidery thread. I freehand sewed it on, but you could use a marking pen to draw the mouth on as a guide if you like. Also sew on buttons for eyes and belly button.

Step 5: Sew arm front and backs and ear front and backs, right sides together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Step 6: Clip curves and turn right side out.

Step 7: Add a little stuffing to the arms

Step 8: Sew the arms and ears with a stay stitch to the body front.

Step 9: Pin the body front and back together, right sides together. Sew 1/4 inch seam allowance leaving a couple inches open for turning.

Step 10: Clip curves and turn right side out .

Step 11: Stuff bear with polyfill

Step 12: Hand sew opening in side of bear with a slipstitch

Step 13(optional) You can sew a little heart for the bear to hold. I drew hearts on felt cut them out and sewed them stacked, and then stuffed a little polyfill inside. You can then handstitch the heart to the bears paws. And you’re done.

    Ashlee – I love your bear! Will you tell me about how tall and wide he is? I don’t think my printer is printing the pattern correctly. Thanks so much.

    • Thank you so much Nina! I gave the bear to my sister a while back, so I don’t know his exact dimensions as of right now. I know that for the pattern each image here should be printed out to a full 8.5×11 piece of paper, so I would guess he would be about 20″ tall by around 7 or 8″ wide. I’ll try to get my sister to measure him. Hope that helps :)
