About the Bears!
Sneak Peek Here!!!
The patterns on offer from Tag Along Teddies are all loveable, aged looking bears, who seem to be in need of a good home. It’s all a ploy! Really, they are just looking for more hugs and honey!!
Most patterns have been designed with beginners in mind and have clear, simple instructions. I’ve also designed them as ‘base’ patterns to give people a starting point in their bear making foray that can be changed, added to and adapted to create their own personalities. You might like to add embroidery, lace, appliqué or fancy buttons to clothes, change the clothes completely or maybe even make the bear from fabric other than toweling, though you need to keep in mind that this may change the fit of the clothes and you may need to make some adaptations there too.
All bears feature reproduction glass eyes, but if you are making them as a toy for a young child, you may like to use safety eyes, as the shanks can break off glass eyes if little fingers twiddle with them too much and they may then be a choking hazard.
Don’t worry if your bear doesn’t look like the pattern picture, as every hand made bear is unique – that’s part of their charm!
Above all, Tag Along Teddies are designed to add warmth to a home and encourage lots of hugs! But be warned – bear making is addictive and few people can stop at one!!
