Do You Love Teddy Bears As Much As I Do?

Like many people, when I was growing up, I had a favorite teddy bear.  I kept that bear for years and years.  Fortunately, it was years ago, so the bear was of high quality and the stuffing was natural cotton, and ohh, did it always smell so nice.  

Today, most teddy bears you buy in the store are made in overseas sweatshops and have components that are more likely to come from an oil refinery than a country pasture.  I don't know about you, but I'm pretty picky about what I like to have near my family, much less something that is going to be held so close to a young and growing child.

If you have someone who you'd like to give a cherished and lasting childhood memory to, you should consider making your own teddy bears.  That way you can control all the materials that go into it and make it with love rather than child labor…

A Teddy Bear Makes A Wonderful Gift

Is there a pattern for the teddy in the main picture at the beginning? I’m after something big and cuddly like that one but I can’t see how to find the pattern. Thanks!

Love all the bears!! I have a dilemma hoping to get some help with. I have my mom in laws mink stole. I want to repurpose it into a teddy. Do you have any suggestions on sewing a teddy with mink??? Thank you all so much.

I have made quite a few bears from mink. You need to remove the lining and all of the materials used for shaping the stole, then take the big pieces of the mink pelts apart til you have flat pieces to work with. Then cut out your pattern from muslin or other light weight cotton fabric and glue all of the pieces onto the skin side of your mink. Be sure to mark the direction you want of the fur on your muslin pieces, as well as on the skin of your fur. Carefully cut the mink from the skin side using very sharp small scissors, using very short snips in order not to cut the fur. Stitch the pieces together through the skin and cotton fabric. I like using a small blanket stitch. Use hard board joints to put the body parts together. Good luck!

Hi Patti.
I make mink bears. Carefully remove the lining of the stole.
Glue a lightweight cotton fabric to the back of the fur. This is to give it strength – old furs are often very fragile and tear easily.
Then trace your pattern pieces onto the fabric. The stole will be made up of several skins – try to minimise the number of seams on each pattern piece, as they might come unstitched.
Remember to note the direction of the fur and place your pattern peices accordingly- for example the fur should run down from the top of each limb to the bottom.
When cutting out the pieces, use very sharp small scissors, and keep the blades very close to the leather. It’s important to cut only the skin, not the fur or you will have ragged-looking seams.
Use a leather needle to stitch it, and make your stitches a bit longer than you might usually do. This is because short stitches will perforate the skin and it will tear when you go to turn it right side out and stuff the bear.
Hope that helps!

I’d love to make the Ettienne Teddy Bear by Lin McKenzie, but the link only shows the picture. I’ve tried searching it on the internet, but can’t find it. Do you know where the pattern link is?
