I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider.

He's a big, huggable teddy bear with soft, suedeish pads on his paws and feet and
smooth satin in his ears.
With all those touchable textures, this is a bear just begging for a snuggle!
Eddie was originally a softie in the Cuddle Club (members got the pattern and everything they needed to make him - available only at Shiny Happy World) and now he's here as a digital pattern for everyone!
What You Get
* A full-sized pattern - no enlarging needed.
* Detailed instructions with lots and lots of step-by-step photos. You'll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing things right.
* Links to videos teaching you every skill you'll need to make your own huggable bear - from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole.
You can totally do this! It's a workshop in a pattern!
What You Need
* 1/2 yd. brown fleece fabric (I love using Cuddle Fleece)
* scraps of black and brown wool felt for the nose and muzzle (I used Black and Copper)
* scraps of brown satin for the ear linings
* scraps of suedeish fabric for the paw pads
* embroidery thread for the mouth ( I used black)
* 2 9mm safety eyes
* plastic pellets for filling (I like Fairfield Poly Pellets)
* polyester fiberfill (I love Fairfield brand Soft Touch Polyfil Supreme)
* sewing machine, thread, basic sewing and embroidery tools
You're going to love this one! Sewing the contrasting fabric to the bottom of his paws might be a new skill for you, but it's easy once you know the trick. And, of course, the pattern includes a link to a video showing you how it's done. :-)
He's about 10 inches tall and about 10 inches wide. That's an excellent size for hugging.
Speaking of hugging - that little doll-sized teddy bear Eddie's holding in the second photo is his best friend, Freddie. He's available as a separate pattern.
After your purchase you'll receive an email allowing you to download the pattern instantly. Your very own Eddie could be snuggling up with someone at bedtime very soon. . . :-)
