This is a kit to make a gorgeous 27cm 11” Teddy Bear like Nessa Bears Posey and will come to you with the mohair material – pattern and colour as shown in the photos here as closely as possible.
Included are :- a full sized pattern of the bear and detailed instructions for its construction together with contrasting material for the pads and paws, English glass eyes and whipping twine to insert them and to pull up the neck joint of the bear; cotter pin joints, sewing thread and perle cotton for embroidering the nose and a long doll needle to use inserting the eyes and sewing the nose.
Each bear you create will develop its own little character as you sew and you will see this most clearly when you put the eyes in and sew its nose – the next one you do will probably look totally different, you can give them whatever expression you like. The power of creation of the little bears becomes quite addictive!
Please send me a photo when you have finished your kit and I will put it into a gallery!
