A teddy bear is a friend for life and every child should have one! They are fun and easy to make especially the little Gingerbread bears! Teddy bears these days are made from all sorts of material: fur (the traditional one), towelling, cotton, different pieces of material sown together for a very colourful bear. Just about anything goes. But be warned! Every bear takes on his or her own character once you have given it eyes and stuffed it. There is no way that you can ever produce the same bear, with the same character, from the very same pattern!
Simple and easy to make, their recommended finished height is approximately 20 cm.
These little bears look similar to gingerbread men and will appeal to any child.
They can be made from any scraps of fabric.
