Make a teddy bear by sewing together pattern pieces in the shape of its body. Simple embroidery stitches can be used to create the bear's features.
- Find a pattern
Search for a teddy bear template online; there are many free patterns available. Look for a template that is an outline of a teddy bear. Print out the pattern.
- Cut out the pattern pieces
Pin the pattern to felt or another heavyweight fabric. Cut out the pattern pieces. Repin the template to another piece of fabric, and cut out a second set of patterns.
- Embroider the face
To create the bear's face, make two French knots for the eyes. For the nose, embroider a small triangle with a satin stitch. Sew two more satin stitches away from the bottom of the nose to make the mouth.
- Sew the bear together
Start at the top of one ear, and sew around the bear with a whip stitch until you reach the other ear. Stuff the bear with fiber fill until firm, and use a chopstick to push the stuffing down into the limbs. Once stuffed, close the head with a whip stitch.
- Add claws
On each of the arms and legs, embroider three 1/4-inch whip stitches.
