Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cut and sew bear limbs, head, and body

Pattern Description:

The history of the teddy bear has always fascinated me. When I saw the cartoon black bear cub by Clifford Berryman (Washington Post, November 1902), I wanted to design a bear that looked and felt just like the cartoon bear. I think I achieved my goal with 'Black Bear Cub 1902' and hope you like this little bear pattern.

This pattern has the inset face, a cute little tail, and perky ears. With my simple pattern steps, an inset face can be easy and fun.

I recommend Schulte mohair for the body, face, and paw pads.
