I am pleased with this book. It has some very characterful designs I will enjoy making. Once made I think the teddies will look like those at the more expensive end, and I can imagine them appealing to older collectors as well as children. Some of the patterns are basic enough for even a beginner in bear making, and with a bit of imagination when you pick the material you can make quite a range of unusual bears.
However you will need to enlarge some of the pattern pieces, so access to a photocopier capable of doing this would be useful.

I have bought several books on making bears as a total beginner and this is not the best. It is good for a couple of patterns for different bears but for those who want a step by step guide to putting together a bear as a beginner this is not the book. It has patterns for different shaped bears and different sized bears which is great but there are better 'step be step' books out there. I am glad I bought this for the variations but for a first bear this is not the one

ideal book for beginners and advanced , with lots of lovely patterns i'm currently making the embroidered bear at the moment , this bear is made with felt as seen on the front cover but they are just as beautiful made in a plush fur or two tone , i love to be adventurous .
