15+ Free Teddy Bear Patterns To Sew {Adorable}

Boys and girls, the little ones and the not so little ones all have one thing in common. They all love teddy bears!

The all-time favorite kids’ toy is the teddy bear, it has been ever since the first one came out all the way back in the early 1900s. Unfortunately, nowadays most teddy bears you can buy are poorly made and as such can’t last long. And when your kid gets attached to their bear, they will want him around for a long time.

That doesn’t mean you should deprive your little one of their fluffy woodland companion though! You just need to make one yourself.

With these free teddy bear patterns at your disposal, you shouldn’t have any difficulties completing that task.

Hi, sorry to be a pain, but the teddy listed here is not a free pattern, after clicking the link you are forwarded to Etsy and is listed as £8.30.

Thought I’d let you know so you are able to check and update your files.

    Helen - November 18, 2021

    Thanks for letting us know, Karen. I’m pretty sure the pattern was free at the time of writing, just went ahead and removed the link.
    I’ll have to find another great free pattern and will replace the teddy bear
