Open House Miniatures - Sock Bear Noah

Somewhere I have a “proper” pattern for a bear.

Somewhere…

Unfortunately my (non-existent) filing system let me down (again) and I had to start again from scratch.

Noah is therefore exceeding handmade and, because I am not very fond of sewing, I cheated a great deal when I made him.

Experienced makers of miniature bears do not look at the slideshow at the bottom of this page – it will upset you – and whatever you do, do not use my pattern.

Open House Miniatures - sock bear  called Noah

This is not a pdf file so
I have no idea what size this will print.

Instead, please go to a website where you can download a professionally designed teddy bear and re-size that.

There are quite a few websites to choose from –

www.planet-teddybear.com

www.sewingsupport.com

www.bearycheap.com

Everyone else…

Noah is a distantly related to Sock the Elephant and, like Sock, he is not for sale.

Meet Sock…

Sock is an Easter elephant – and I promised someone that I would write about him “properly” on this blog.

Sock is unique and most definitely not for sale.

His name probably explains a great deal about him, but it would also be useful to know that –

  • His cap and back cloth are embroidered in 2 ply crewel wool, and the blue trim and tassels are embroidery cotton
  • His tail is embroidery cotton too.

If you would like an elephant like Sock you might find this pattern useful.

This is reproduction – from a greetings card.
The original cigarette card was from a set called –
Household Hints (2nd series)

I am not very fond of sewing, but I enjoyed making Sock.

Next Week…

Making a Pop-up book.

There is still a short time before the poll closes, but it looks as though “Christmas Eve” is going to be a clear winner.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.
