We are very pleased to introduce our new range of teddy bear patterns, these are mostly traditional bear patterns that we have designed ourselves, as we make more bears in each design we'll add more photos so that you can see how the patterns can be made up in different types of mohair, we hope you like them. We also have a pattern by our friend Elanor Andrews of Shantock Bears, we hope you like this one too, he's a little different from our bears.

The patterns come with complete instructions including drawings to help with the tricky bits, although they are quite straightforward.


We can supply them as kits if you like, just choose the mohair and we'll let you know how much the total cost will be. All prices are displayed in British Pounds if you would like to find out the approximate equivalent price in your own currency please use the link on the left.

The patterns cost £8 each or £5 if bought with mohair, 4 patterns cost £25.

The postage is £1.50 in the UK(for any number of patterns) or at no additional cost if included with an order for mohair, postage outside the UK is £3.00 GBP, unless included with an order for mohair.

If you would like to order some patterns please call or email us, you can pay by credit card over the phone or we can send a PayPal invoice, if emailing please tell us where you live so that we can charge the correct amount of postage.

We now have our own Etsy shop for patterns, called MakeATeddy which you can visit by clicking here where you can buy the patterns safely online and either download the pattern immediately for you to print or have the pattern posted to you by us.

Alfred Albert traditional teddy bear pattern

Alfred Albert traditional teddy bear pattern

Alfred Albert is an old Barbara-Ann Bear from the 1990's. We think he looks best in scruffy mohair, sparse or vintage but he looks very dapper in denser mohair too. We've found him a very adaptable pattern and because his body shape is quite doll-like he lends himself to being dressed, we used to make him as a pirate and once he became Fred and Ginger.

Alfred Albert is about 16 inches/40cm tall, his pattern uses 3/8ths of a metre (or a 40cm strip) of mohair and he needs 5x45mm joints.

We think he looks particularly good in the Edwardian studded collar, unfortunately they're hard to come by these days.
