Digital PATTERN - 17" Huckleberry Bear
Ever wanted to make a big, fat hunk of a bear!? Well this is the fellow for you!
This design is a little more complicated than some of our beginner patterns, but if you've made a bear before, especially one of our easier designs, then you'll be totally fine with this one.
This bear looks great in both short and long fur, mohair, alpaca and even faux fur.
*** All example bears have been made from this pattern ***
This bear ends up approx 17" tall when standing, or approx 11" in sitting position.
You will need:
- At least 50cm x 90cm of fur (the closest standard size is a 1/2m)
- 10-14mm eyes (either black or they can be hand-painted)
- 1 piece of Paw pad material (approx a 1/16m piece – 25cm x 35cm) or you can cut the paw pads from the fur and trim it back.
- 60-65mm joint set for limbs (45mm joint size best for neck joint - special Huckleberry joint set can be found here.)
- Embroidery thread for the nose/toes
- approx 600g of stuffing depending on how firmly you fill your bear and 200-400g of bead shot if you's like to add weighting.
Suitable for intermediate bear making skills. The pattern is not terribly difficult, but it will help to have some bear making experience. Instructions are included for the 3D toe effect as well.
Comes with detailed, step by step instructions and photos of finished bears for reference.
All pieces are at correct size - no enlarging or reducing required. The fat body shape is larger then an A4 piece of paper though, so is included in two pieces. You can join them to make a single body piece, or keep the pieces separate and cut them from different colours of fur.
All patterns are copied exactly from my personal stock and have been hand drawn and designed by me. They are also my well loved designs and have been tested on numerous occasions - So i know that they work! Seam allowances, openings. fur directions etc have been pre-marked on the pieces.
*** IMPORTANT - Please keep in mind that while I do give you permission to sell any bears you make while using my patterns, we just ask that you credit my design when describing/ listing your bear for sale online, or when writing a tag or certificate for your bear (which would just look like a sentence that says ‘made using an Emma’s Bears pattern’). We see a LOT of our designs being made up and advertised without credit, and it is a little soul destroying. Please do the right thing!
