Makepeace Traditional Mohair Heirloom Teddy Bear Kit. A jointed teddy bear kit suitable for a beginner by Make A Teddy to make a 10 inch (25 cm) teddy bear.
We have created this kit with everything you need apart from scissors and a few things you will have at home. The instructions are thorough but we are on hand for extra support by phone. Makepeace has beautiful gold English or German mohair (see the options) and German wool felt pads and genuine Victorian boot button eyes. He has polyester stuffing and some plastic pellets to add weight and a little squidgyness. Barbara has drawn out the pattern on the mohair but the paper pattern included is reusable. This pattern was used for Marigold’s teddy that we made for Downton Abbey and one of the options uses the almost identical mohair to the bear we made for the programme. This kit is nicely boxed ready for Christmas and we can put in one of our own gift tags and a Christmas card from our own drawings for free if you ask us to.
