These mini teddy-bears are just the right size for little hands to hold. Finished height is approx 19cm.

Step 1

Enlarge template by 200 per cent on a photocopier.

Step 2

Cut out two pieces from fabric. Pin and stitch together around stitching line, leaving a gap in side of one leg for turning through. Work a second row of stitching for reinforcement.

 Step 3
Trim seam allowances to 3mm and clip to stitching at all corners. Turn right side out. Fill with polyester toy stuffing and sew up gap in stitching. Using black thread, work a few straight stitches for eyes and nose where marked. Tie narrow ribbon around neck and stitch securely in place.

We used Tana lawn from a selection at Liberty (020 7734 1234).
