Our Teddy Bear is ready to have his ears sewn on and the finishing touches added.

Art and Craft Supplies

Patience

Method

Ears
1. Use the cotton and dolls needle to attach Teddy's ears to his head on one side.

2. Sew from the back of the head through the bottom of the ear and back down. I use a blanket stitch the whole time I make Teddy.

3. If you have enough cotton on the needle, you can thread through to where the other ear is going to sit and sew that one into place. Otherwise, you will need to tie off the first ear and rethread for the second ear.

4. Sew both ears on Teddy's head, using your best judgement to make sure they look right to and are sitting where you want them to be.

Finishing Touches
1. Take the awl and go over all the seems, pulling the fur out, so that you cannot see the stitches so much.

2. Stuff the body of Teddy.

3. Sew your personal tag onto one side of his back. Mine says, 'Teddy by Selina.'

4. Sew the back seam up completely.

5. Use the Awl one last time to pull fur out of the seems and hide as much of the stitching as possible.

6. Congratulate yourself as you have made your very own jointed teddy bear!

These Teddy Bears are not Children's Toys due to the joints used. But if you want to make a child safe toy, I recommend that you contact Teddy Bear Bits and discuss joint options, depending on the age of the child.

You can dress Teddy or leave him.

Cutest little Teddy Bear in Town!


You can add a mouth with thick embroidery cotton or leave him as he is. This Teddy looked just fine without a mouth so I chose to leave him as it and fluff up his fur.

All the best with your Teddy Bear creating.

As I said in my first article, this can become a very addictive hobby and there are many Teddy Bear Enthusiasts out there that will buy bears made by Bear Artists.

See this series from the beginning.
