THIS IS THE PRINTED VERSION OF THE ALFRED ALBERT TEDDY BEAR PATTERN WHICH WE WILL POST TO YOU
The Alfred Albert Teddy Bear pattern makes an elegant traditional Barbara-Ann Bear about 16 inches (40cm) tall.
He has quite a slim body and fairly long arms and legs which make shim a nice bear for dressing up, we have made pirate Alfred Alberts and even Fred and Ginger Alfred Alberts (with the help of a dress making friend). We also used this design to make a bear for The Titanic Museum in Belfast...it's lying on a bed in the mock-up of a third class cabin.
We've used this pattern to make bears in a variety of mohairs ranging from 3mm vintage mohair to 25mm dense and in crushed velvet. Alfred Albert is an old style, traditional bear and he's fairly easy to make even for a beginner. The pieces fit together easily, there are no darts and no need to gather pieces in order to make them fit. He's a bear you can make in a comfortable chair while watching TV and suitable for sewing by hand or machine. The pattern includes all the instructions you need to make your bear with many diagrams for the more difficult parts. The pattern and instructions are on 12 x A4 sheets, the pattern is full sized.
You'll need a 3/8 metre of mohair (65cm X 140 cm, 26in x 55 in) paw pad material, glass eyes or shoe buttons and 5 x 45mm joints. We use plastic pellets in the feet, hands, ankles, wrists and tummy to make him a little saggier and cuddly. If you need any of the items necessary to make your bear, mohair, wool felt, eyes, sewing thread, strong button thread, bear making tools, polyester stuffing or glass beads, please contact us and we can supply what you need, you'll just need to pay for them separately.
Please note that the completed bear is not a toy and is unsuitable for children under the age of 14, it is a collector's bear.
