Kids and Moms love Teddy Bears

Emili and the big teddy bear

Over the years, I’ve made about everything you could think of for a child as with a  teddy bear theme. I have many teddy bears that were childhood toys and I still have them; My girls received many as newborn presents and they still have them too. When they were small, I made teddy bear bibs…

when it really mattered

These needle felted teddy bears were easy to make. Each bear was made by felting together wool shapes.

  1. The teddy bear head is made from a ball, a cone (snout), a tiny ball (nose) and 2 half circles (ears). Two dolls eyes were inserted and glued above the snout.
  2. The body is a big oval, the arms are  long tubes, the legs are longer tubes, the feet are short tubes that are attached to the ends of the legs.
  3. The head, arms and legs are wrapped with curly, brown mohair yarn (2 skeins), then felted securely into the shapes.
  4. The head, arms and legs are sewn onto the body with a doll needle and embroidery thread. Voila, Best Friend!
