Happy Bear


No matter how old you get, it's never too late to have a soft toy. These huggable companions can bring an instant smile, and cheer people up when they feel down.
Using these easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, you will easily make your own Happy Bear. Make yourself a special keepsake bear or share your gift of stitching with someone special. When you make your first one I'm sure you won't be able to stop.

This fairly quick and simple bear can be made from many types of fabric, including old clothes that you like to keep and treasure. I made the plaid one using my daughter's dress and the other one using my shirt. For stretchable fabrics use fusible interfacing.
