THIS IS THE PRINTED VERSION OF THE LITTLE DIGBY TEDDY BEAR PATTERN WHICH WE WILL SEND TO YOU IN THE POST
Little Digby is a sweet, little, old-fashioned Barbara-Ann Bear, he's quite a tubby little bear, not exactly classical in design, he's a little more modern. Little Digby is about 11 inches/28cm tall
We've used this pattern to make bears in a variety of mohairs ranging from 7mm straight pile mohair to 16mm sparse as well as using other materials such as crushed velvet/viscose. Little Digby is quite a traditional bear and he's fairly easy to make. 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 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 3 x A4 sheets and is full sized.
You’ll need 1/6th metre of mohair, matching pad material, a pair of eyes and thread for the nose and mouth. You need a piece of cheaper felt to make the pads stronger and more durable, some polyester stuffing, plastic pellets, or wood wool if you’re feeling adventurous, some strong button thread nearest in colour to the mohair backing, a long doll maker’s needle, size 18 darner’s needle, sharp scissors and a marker pen, 5 x 30 mm joints.
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.
