I decided I would try a couple of “real”, properly jointed teddy bears, ones I intend to keep for myself (I keep very few things for me)…here are what I came up with. They are both patterns not designed by me. The first is from a Japanese teddy bear pattern book I bought years ago, designed by Sugi Okiyasu. I dyed some yummy curly mohair for him. The smaller, viscose bear is a pattern by the wonderful Vivianne Galli.
