A Free Teddy Bear Pattern



The charm of our free Bear Bag Bears comes from their shifting stuffing. Try different stuffings for different effects - dried beans, peas, popcorn, rice, lentils and even barley. We learned at the Bear Pair from Katherine Hockney that you can heat the Bean Bag Bears in the microwave and lay them across those aching neck muscles. Don't leave them in too long or you might have puffed rice or lentils (a minute on high should do nicely). CLICK HERE to print up the pattern. If you want to print up these instructions CLICK HERE to print them up!.


Materials:
lOx 16" of velvet or other fabric
2 ounces of lentils or other grains
Eyes: buttons, embroidered eyes
Thread: Embroideiy floss for mouth

To make the Bear:
Trace around pattern adding 1/4" seam allowances. Cut one body back on fold: cut 2(1 reversed) body fronts and 4 ears.

  1. Pin the EAR pieces right sides together and sew around the top. Leave the bottom open. Turn right side out. Fold a small tuck in the ear front and pin.
  2. Pin the BODY FRONTS together and stitch the front seams. If you plan to machine embroider EYES, do its this point
  3. Open the front. Pin the EARS in place on top of the HEAD. Stitch in place.
  4. Fold a small tuck, as shown on the pattern, on both sides of the BODY BACK piece at the top of the LEGS, This forms the bears seat. Pin or baste in place.
  5. Pin the BODY BACK and BODY FRONT together, matching the circle shapes. Stitch around the entire body, except for a 1 1/2" opening on top of the HEAD for turning and stuffing. Clip the seam allowances on all inside corners so the seams will not pull when turned.
  6. Turn the bear right side out Open the top of a bag of lentils. Push the opening into the bear's hole. Carefully pour the bear almost full of lentils.
  7. To finish, close the hole by tucking in a small hem and the ladder stitch. Embroider the nose, eyes and mouth.
