Welcome to our Teddy Bear Kits page. We have received a lot of enquiries over the years from people who would like to make their own Barbara-Ann Bear and now we have finally done something about it and have eight kits available to make your own one of a kind bear. As all the mohair is unique to each kit you will definitely be making your own one of a kind artist bear.
Each one of a kind kit is made from unique pieces of hand dyed mohair, together with matching paw pad material, beautiful hand painted eyes and nose threads. They come complete with patterns and full instructions, with diagrams for the trickier bits. You need to have or buy, needles, you'll need some longer doll maker's needles for putting the eyes in and we use longish (size 18) darners for sewing the nose, sewing thread and stronger button thread to match the colour of the mohair, plus stuffing material usually polyester and pellets, and the joints, I am happy to supply these but I don't include them with my kits as a matter of course as you my have them already and it would just put the cost up unnecessarily.
We also have a new range of traditional teddy bear kits, made with traditional German mohair, pads and boot button eyes.
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
