Bailey Bear Softie
Bailey Bear Softie

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing curves
  • stuffing
  • handsewing the stuffing hole closed

Pattern Description:

Bailey is a great bear for any age. There are no buttons or other small parts that would be a choking hazard for a baby - and you can make it up in funky fabrics and patterns for older kids. I usually choose a fabric with texture for the tummy patch - corduroy, chenille, velvet, flannel, etc. No special reason - I just think it's fun. :-)

You'll receive a full-sized pattern with complete instructions and loads of step-by-step photos.

This is a VERY easy pattern - perfect for beginners. You'll need only simple sewing skills, and the pattern has links to videos teaching you everything you'll need to know.

Bailey Bear takes 4-5 hours to make. A really fun afternoon!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 10 inches tall


  • 1/3 yard main fabric
  • scraps for ear linings, belly
  • stuffing
  • embroidery thread
