Baby's First Bear
A few days before I was scheduled to be induced to deliver my surro-bub Zander, I sat down to make him a little teddy of his own (the photo above shows Zander at 1-week old with that teddy). I wanted the design to be as childfriendly as possible, so played with an older design of mine to end up with an unjointed floppy bear with safety eyes. The bear is super easy to create (working beautifully in both plush, faux fur and mohair), and we will be releasing the pattern for it shortly as well.
"Baby's First Bear' is a brand new range of teddies to be released from the Emma's Bears studio. These cute little bears are specifically designed to be safer for children. They have child-like large heads and finer bodies, highset ears, are completely unjointed, have black safety eyes and are fully machine washable (which means they're ready for some hands-on playtime!). We've stuffed them softly with a brand new hypo-alergenic polyfill stuffing, and left the bead weights out so there are minimal small parts."
We've made 10 Baby's First Bears as our starting range, and they can be found in our etsy store. *** Please note that at the time of writing some bears have sold***
