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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some bear/doll making experience helpful Knowledge of soft scullpture helpful SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 17" tall when sitting

Supplies Needed

  • 3/4 yard fur
  • 1/4 yard material of your choice for paw pad, and inner ears
  • stuffing
