There's an easy way to own a traditionally styled teddy bear: make it yourself! It's not difficult at all; with basic sewing skills, and this encyclopedia at your side, you're ready to begin. Materials lists explain what to use for children's and collectors' bears. Information on the best tools and equipment will help you do the job well. Work from a pattern, or see how to design your own; follow detailed instructions on fabric layout, marking, and cutting; and stitch it up, piece by piece. Get the "bear bones" on inserting joints and stuffing. Add expressive facial features, antique or distress the animal to give it a much-loved look, and make miniatures and garments. You'll cherish these bears for a lifetime.
