Derek 17 1/2 inch Teddy Bear Pattern

of “Bears of Walnut Grove”
Derek 17 1/2 inch Teddy Bear Pattern is a lovely bear who loves to be hugged. He has long arms to hug you back. Derek is made from dense, curly mohair. His tummy is big and round (it is thought to bring you good luck when rubbed) and is an ideal size for a growler. To give him a lovely, heavy feel, fill his tummy with plastic pellets. Derek is a wonderful companion bear, because he is a great listener.
The Derek 17 1/2 inch Teddy Bear Pattern is suitable for a Beginner to the more experienced Bear makers and would look good in all Fur types.
Donna was our main in store Teddy Bear Class teacher between 2012 – 2016 but has had a lifetime of experience in making and designing her own Bears. We have a lovely collection of her Teddy Bear patterns for you to choose from.
