Toby is a 19cm (7 1/2 inches) old style teddy bear. He is made of mohair with glass eyes and movable joints. The Toby teddy bear pattern is suitable for intermediate to advanced teddy bear makers.

This vintage-style bear is the perfect addition to your teddy bear collection. Small enough to easily sit on a shelf or in a display cabinet, he’s big on charm. Toby will look so sweet nestled in amongst his teddy friends. The Toby teddy bear pattern is the perfect project to upcycle that piece of vintage wool coat or blanket you’ve been saving for something special.

What Fabric is Suitable to Make this Bear?

We made our Toby using distressed mohair with a short nap. You can also use slightly more furry mohair, long pile miniature bear fabric, or upholstery fabric. Vintage cotton fabric would suit the bear, just be sure to use iron-on interfacing to stabilize the fabric. Although we think that most synthetic fur fabrics wouldn’t do the pattern justice, it would probably work with a fur pile less than 10mm.

Full Supplies List:

  • Fabric – 25cm x 35cm (1/16m) distressed mohair
  • Eyes – 5mm black glass
  • Joints – 13mm and 17mm discs with split pins
  • Nose Thread – black embroidery thread no 8
  • Paw Pads – a scrap of suede or leather

Sewing Tools and General Supplies:

In addition to the items in the supplies list above, you will need fiber fill stuffing, sewing thread, and possibly some glass beads or lead shot to weight the bear.

Have the following tools on hand:

  • Fabric marking pen to mark out the pattern pieces on the fabric
  • Small sharp scissors for cutting out
  • Hand sewing needles
  • A long doll needle to insert the eyes
  • A hemostat or stuffing tool
  • Needle nose pliers for the joints

Hand Sewing or Sewing Machine?

We prefer to sew our small bears entirely by hand. You can save time by sewing the seams using a sewing machine. However, you will still need to do some hand-finishing.
