Barbara-Ann Bears from the sublime to the ridiculous

Big Dave
One of a Kind
Teddy Bear Kit


The Big Dave kit costs £95 plus postage, packing and insurance*, it makes a traditional centre-seam bear about 17”/ 44cm tall. The kit includes enough hand dyed mohair to easily make your bear plus having some left over in case you make any mistakes.

Each kit is made from a unique piece of hand dyed mohair, together with matching paw pad material, beautiful hand painted eyes and nose threads. It comes complete with pattern and full instructions, with diagrams for the trickier bits. You need to buy joints, sewing thread and strong button thread, bear making tools and stuffing material. As all the mohair is unique to each kit you will definitely be making your own one of a kind artist bear.

If you feel that you need some personal help in making your bear I can offer teddy bear making workshops either on a one to one or group basis. Please click here for more details

I look forward to hearing from you
