Traditional Teddy Bear
Kits

 
 

Welcome to our new traditional Teddy Bear Kits page, we have just a few kits available at the moment but more will be added in time.

Each kit includes a piece of traditional mohair, together with matching paw pad material, shoe button eyes and nose threads. They come complete with patterns and full instructions, with diagrams for the trickier bits.

We can also supply you with the other items you'll need to complete your own home made teddy bear; needles, you'll need some longer doll maker's needles for putting the eyes in and we use longish (size 18) darners for sewing the nose, sewing thread and stronger button thread to match the colour of the mohair, plus stuffing material usually polyester and pellets, and the joints. I don't include these items as you may have them already and it would just put the cost up unnecessarily, but we have them all here, just ask, I can supply joints, threads, stuffing materials, needles and scissors which can easily be included with your kit.

Since taking over Norbeary fabrics in 2007 we are now able to supply the mohair to make up the kits. If you would prefer another type of mohair to be included with the kit that's no problem just let us know and we'll tell you how much the kit will cost. You can see the mohair available by clicking here which takes you to the Norbeary Fabrics website. You can also purchase a variety of patterns on their own on the Norbeary Fabrics website.

If you feel that you need some personal help in making your bear I can offer teddy bear making workshops either on a one to one or group basis. Please click here for more details


Please call 01303 870087 to order any of our kits or bears, we can take payment by debit or credit card over the phone or by PayPal online.
