This review is from: Bear Necessities (Craftworld series) (Paperback)
Some lovely ideas in here, patterns are all full size and the teds come with outfits too. Ted quilts are included and a gorgeous little wallhanging with mini teds in beds. Very good instructions,easy to follow, maybe not for those who are deadly serious about their bears, but for anyone who'd like to make their little one a ted to be loved and enjoyed, then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patterns for making bears., 12 Jan 2014

This review is from: Bear Necessities (Craftworld series) (Paperback)
This is a lovely little book with so many full size patterns for both bears and their clothes. Easy to follow instructions. Well worth purchase if you love bears and would like to learn to make them. The range is from very easy to a little more difficult, but they are not difficult to make and you also have some quilt instructions too.

Brilliant book. Full instructions are given on each bear with cutting layouts to make the most of your fabric. Full instructions are given on the assembly of the bears. Many different bears with full sized patterns, clothes patterns and instructions for each bear, Instructions for doing the bear faces with different ideas on stitching the nose and mouth to give different character faces.

If you are new to bear making then this book is for you. Also the more experienced sewists will also love this book.

Don't think about it... You will love this book so buy it.

Even though it is not newly published (2002), this book is an interesting one to read, as well as having templates at the back to draw round to make the bears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear making, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bear Necessities (Craftworld series) (Paperback)
What a delightful book. If, like me, you adore teddy bears but have never made one, this is the book to convince you to have a go! The pattern pieces are actual size, so no annoying up-scaling. Everything is very well explained with detailed text accompanying clear diagrams (which are coloured rather than just boring black and white) Colour photos show off the finished items beautifully. And it's lovely to have clothes patterns for each size of bear AND bed clothes, as well as adorable wall hangings. I can't praise this book enough!
