Pattern Description:

Imagine making a baby's first favorite toy - a soft, huggable, handmade teddy bear. This bear has embroidered features and machine-sewn arms, legs, and ears. There are no small parts that might come off, even after years of snuggling and play. And make a cute matching blankie, too, perfect for the crib and complete with little ribbon loops to play with.

This quick and easy pattern will become a go-to staple of your sewing repertoire, as you turn a half yard of soft fleece and a fat quarter of quilting cotton or flannel into an adorable bear and blankie set that will delight baby and parents alike. This bear can also be sewing from quilting cotton if you'd like!

A quick and easy gift for that special person's baby shower!
