The Francis Teddy Bear pattern makes a sweet traditional Barbara-Ann Bear about 14 inches (36 cm) tall.
Francis is a very sweet teddy bear, he has quite a big tummy and loves a cuddle. This is our newest teddy bear sewing pattern, you can see the bears we've made with our Francis teddy bear pattern so far, one in our 9mm Golden Corn mohair, one in dense red mohair and another in velvet, we think they look very sweet. You could use slightly longer mohair or you could make him using other fabric, as a memory bear for example. The pieces fit together easily, there are no darts and no need to gather pieces in order to make them fit. He's a bear you can make in a comfortable chair while watching TV and suitable for sewing by hand or machine.
The pattern includes all the instructions you need to make your bear with some diagrams for the more difficult parts. The pattern is on 3 x A4 sheets and is full sized.
You'll need a 1/4 metre (50 x 70 cm or 25cm x 140cm) of mohair, paw pad material (20x25cm), 10mm shoe button or black glass eyes and 2 x 34mmm and 3x 45mm joints. We use plastic pellets in the feet, hands, ankles, wrists and tummy to make him a little saggier and cuddly.
