Wilmot Teddy Bear Pattern, His Trousers, and His Puppy!
Wilmot is a 36cm (12 inches) fully jointed teddy bear. We made ours of felt, with glass eyes. The puppy pattern is cut all-in-one, with only a head joint. The pattern for Wilmot’s trousers is also included. This sewing pattern is suitable for beginner to intermediate teddy bear makers.
Wilmot is a modern-style teddy bear with poseable bent arms and legs and this makes him the perfect addition to your collectible toy display. Wilmot is large enough to sit in a toy chair or on a bookshelf and everyone will notice his handsome features.
This is the printed version of the pattern. A printed teddy bear pattern is a great choice because you will receive the pattern templates ready to cut out and printed instructions that you can refer to on your worktable as you sew. Once you have paid for your order, we will ship the pattern sheets and instructions to your delivery address.
What Fabric is Suitable to Make this Bear?
We made our Wilmot using brown felt and scraps of suede. For the puppy, you will need felt and suede, and you will need a scrap of cotton fabric to make the trousers. Wilmot will also look good in mohair or synthetic fur, and you could even use corduroy, denim, or cotton fabric to make him.
