My First Teddy

This is the first teddy bear I have ever made! Don't you just want to squeeze him?

Since I had never made a stuffed animal before, I used a store-bought pattern. I already had some fabric leftover from a nursing cover I made for a friend a couple of years ago, plus I had a ton of stuffing just taking up space in my closet.

I added the bow around his neck afterward but I think he might need something else... a bigger bow? A necktie? Bow tie? Scarf? Maybe he needs something more... geeky.

Oo I just had an idea! I bet I could make stuffed animals out of old T-shirts. I think I have some freebie Microsoft Windows T-shirts lying around somewhere that would look cute... perhaps as a bunny...


  1. That is a familiar pattern. ;) Nice job on the bear. I have instructions for turning t shirts into tote bags. I could send you a copy.

  2. FYI my baby is going to need one of those. And a quilt. And a Star Wars costume.

  3. Deborah - I'll start with the teddy, lol! Been needing a new project to work on anyway. :)

  4. no i vote for the star wars costume first!
