How to make a miniature teddy bear












*7” X 9” piece of 1/2” ultra sparse mohair (I used Intercal's 300S/color 423SD - Honey tan w/dark back)
*2" X 2" piece of felt (footpads)
*5 Mini T cotterpins   *Be sure to get mini T-cotter pins as regular mini cotter pins have a loop that will not work for this small of a pattern.
*6 - 1/2" joint discs
*4 - 3/8" joint discs
*5mm black glass eyes (1 pair)
*Artificial sinew (or strong waxed floss)
(For eyes & closing head)
*Pearle cotton (for nose & mouth)
*Upholstery thread to match fabric backing
(for hand sewing, closing seams & attaching ears)
*Stainless steel mini shot or glass beads (optional)
