Debonair Bear PDF Pattern
I get so into posting on Instagram (you should follow me on Instagram) that I forget to blog about my projects, too. Whoops!
I just released my sixth PDF pattern, Debonair Bear! The bear above is the first official one that I made for my nephew, Graham. I typically make a lot of flops before I get the pattern just right and this guy was the first one that came out to my satisfaction.
It’s a fun little easy sew. You can make a girl or a boy bear, as the pattern includes how to make the bowtie or a headband. My favorite feature is her fabulous hips. 🙂
Sewers of all skills tested the pattern, including an eleven-year-old girl who did a fabulous job. This bear was made by Kate, who tested for me.
You can get as intricate as you want with his facial features. I like this little guy’s painted-on eyes. I’m also working on a couple of tutorials (free) for clothing items you can put on your bear, and I’ll be posting them here on the blog.
I think he’d be cute with his arms and ears made out of a coordinating fabric different from his body as well.
The pattern is currently on sale. You can purchase it in my Etsy shop or on Craftsy. I’ll leave the sale up for a few more days since I totally spaced blogging about my release on Monday. 🙂 I hope you find this fun little bear as cute as I do. You can definitely use the pattern to upcycle your kid’s baby clothes, which is a popular thing to do. I want to make a patchwork one, as well. You know my crazy love for tiny squares.
