Make your own personalized Heirloom Bear!
Heirloom bears — a symbol of love, safety and comfort — are bears made lovingly for a specific person or occasion. This class will teach you to create a fully jointed bear that can sit, turn its head, and move its arms. Several size bear patterns will be available from 12″ to 18″ and patterns for basic clothing will be shared.
The class is not designed to create the clothing; the bear takes 5-6 hours for beginners.
Heirloom bears will be taught in small classes to ensure maximum assistance. Patterns, written directions, stuffing, eyes, noses, joints for head and limbs, and paw pad fabrics will be provided.
These heirloom bears are made under the gentle guidance of our bear expert, Laurelei Creuzer.
