Pattern Description:

I love the history of the teddy bear. This classic bear design is an artist rendition of the 1902 Ideal Toy Co. teddy bear by Rose Michtom.

Pattern Instructions and template guide (bear parts):
Included are precise and detailed written directions, step by step through the entire bear making process: from pattern cutting to sewing to finishing. Also included are my "tips" throughout the pattern which I have learned from sources as Rotraud Ilisch of Germany, Linda S. Mead of Spare Bear Parts, and from years of creating my own bear patterns.
