This sweet and quite round teddy was inspired by early children's toys that many times included a rattle in the belly. He is about 7" tall and is outfitted with a sweet paper hat and bandanna. You will create Teddy from soft German mohair and will joint his arms and head to be posable!
~ There are multiple ways to create movable joints in teddy bears and I show more than one style when I'm teaching. However, my kits include cotter pin joints (even for arms and legs) because most people have a needle nose plier around to tighten them with, the other types of jointing hardware take more specialized tools.

* Hand dyed wool, mohair or velvet colors in kits will vary often as dye lots do change. Many fabrics I dye myself and some I purchase from others, this variance in dye lots is what makes these fun projects unique!
