Bruno PRINTED teddy bear sewing pattern to make a sweet, little, bear cub like, Barbara-Ann Bear about 6.5 inches/ 16 cm tall, he has been designed to suit both beginners and experienced teddy bear makers.
Bruno is one of our smallest teddy bear patterns, the pattern was designed to make a bear quite like a little bear cub, with quite a big head and a small snout.
We've used this pattern once so far, just in a short brown mohair, we think he suits mohairs between 4 and 15mm best, or other fabrics. Bruno is a sweet little 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 by machine if you are proficient.
The pattern includes all the instructions you need to make your bear with lots diagrams for the more difficult parts, we have made the instructions particularly detailed to make it easier for beginners, it's a comfortable size to work on, not too big and not too small. The pattern is on one sheet of A4 paper and is full sized.
