Pattern Description:

Baird Bear is a new 2013 bear pattern with clearly written and illustrated directions. He sits at 17" tall and is a big bear love. I do not include directions for soft sculpting his face or paw pads, but I do include directions for jointing, inserting the music box, and needle felting his eyes, as well as a great list of suppliers.

My book, Beyond Bears, available on my website or Amazon, gives detailed written and illustrated directions for soft sculpting and other jointing and finishing methods.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 17" tall when sitting


  • 3/4 yard fur
  • 1/4 yard material of your choice for paw pad, and inner ears
  • stuffing
  • embroidery floss
  • felting needle and roving for eyes
  • music box with wind stem (supplier incuded in directions)
  • basic sewing supplies
  • 5-- 55 mm joints
