I was very creative last year BUT I forgot to blog about it, so I have decided to start this year off with a free pattern 🙂
I hope that you enjoy making Doogie and maybe even consider making one for a charity project called Bearathon that I have teamed up with… you can find more info about this awesome worldwide project HERE
Meet Doogie – a very quick and easy bear to make – I made him in just a few hours by hand because I was too lazy to get up and get the sewing machine 🙂
You will need: Synthetic fur of your choice, back and white felt, toy stuffing, scissors, sewing thread and needle.
Print the pattern to fit onto an A4 page.
Draw the pattern onto your fabric and cut out 2 bodies (1 reversed) and 4 arms (2 reversed) from the synthetic fur, and eyes and nose from felt.
Sew the arms together in pairs – leaving the tops open for turning and stuffing, stuff lightly and pin to the front of the body where indicated.
Now pin the back of the body fur side inside to the front and sew around, leaving the opening at the top for turning and stuffing.
Turn inside out and stuff. Sew top of head closed using ladder stitch. Top stitch a line to define the ears and blanket stitch the eyes and nose on – DONE ♥
Now give your new friend a hug and consider making another one for someone special ♥
