Simple teddy bear pattern : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Yesterday in Wal_mart I found a "kit" for $6 for making a 9 inch teddy bear. the kit include the material (already cut out). stuffing, embroidery thread, embroidery needles, even some straight pins, and some really easy directions (the kit said for kids 8 and older but husband said he didn't think many 8 year olds could have completed it)

Anyway, I bought the kit for ME not for an 8 year old. First I traced the fabric pieces onto old manila envelopes for a new pattern. Then I carefully made the bear. Now I have one bear completed and a wonderfully simple pattern for making numerous other bears from scraps of materials!

In the middle of trying to learn to knit and spin, this was a pleasant interlude because it was EASY! And the bear is cute!

I did use more stuffing than was included in the kit so he would have a rounder tummy and butt.

I bought a simple (2 pieces) pattern of bear, rabbit, & lamb in one envelope for $4.50 at Walmart.(the pattern was half price) I think McCalls Crafts. Have made many bears. The neatest were out of an OLD fake fur coat of my mother's!!! The other cute one was out of old denim.
