    In Need Of A Teddy Bear Pattern

    I'm looking for a teddy bear pattern for an 8-10" bear that does not require joint mechanisms (such as cotter pins and discs). I've looked into some patterns, but after three days of searching the web, I just keep finding patterns for larger bears or for bears that are jointed, so they're sewn differently. Are there any patterns you recommend?

    How dimensional do you want it? This simple pattern could be downsized:

    This one could also be printed out and then copied so it is smaller:

    This is a more complicated pattern:

    Got all of the above (and there are more) from this website:

    I've made one similar to the one above linked to Bev...it works up quickly and the good thing is they are a safe toy for the very youngest. No eyes or embroidered eyes and nose...perfect!

    Thanks to all of you being so very helpful! I wasn't looking for a pattern, but saved the sites.
    I make quilts for families in need or homeless. So now I could make some teddies that go with it too.

    Thank you,

    I was trying to send a pic of what we call Me Dolls....only uses two cutouts sewn together except for a small area where you can stuff it...very popular with hospitals. I have the cardboard pattern if you want this one.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    Oh, I like the little tab on the doll pattern; makes closing up the stuffing hole so much easier because of the extra tuck-in!

    If you line the fabric with thin batting before sewing together, it keeps the toy from becoming bumpy with stuffing.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
