Teddy Bear Making
I wish Judi and Chris, and Tolly, from Christie Bears, a happy retirement and thank them for giving me this opportunity to branch into a different area of business.
All the bear pattern packs consist of -
English black glass eyes.
The eyes are top quality and made here in the UK . They feature a stainless steel pin for inserting, with thread, into the bears.
The joints are made from fibre or hardboard and the fittings are all zinc coated.
Making Bears requires a few items that you may not find in a standard sewing kit so to help you get started I have put together a list of the items you will need.
Bear Making basic tool kit -
Cotter pin key or pliers for fitting cotter pin joints
Nut drivers or spanners for fitting nut & bolt joints
Sharp small scissors for cutting fur & threads
Long dolls needles for inserting eyes
Bear making Sewing kit - hand sewing
Hand sewing needles (curved needle can help in stitching ears)
Template plastic or card are useful
COMING SOON - ENGLISH GLASS EYES - I will be putting these eyes on the website in the next couple of weeks but if you would like to buy them before then please email me using the contact page and I will send you a price list. You can still pay by paypal if you wish.
I have been making bears for many years so if you are unsure about choosing or have a question - help is just a call away.
All these bears are collectors items, they are not for suitable for children.
