A wonderful collection of ten classic teddy bear designs to be enjoyed by all the family. The teddy bear is less than a century old, yet it has become the most popular of nursery toys, and many accompany their young owners into adulthood. Now Brian and Donna Gibbs, authors of classic bear-making books, have turned their skills to produce this unique collection of teddies to treasure, each guaranteed to become a family heirloom, adored by both young and old alike. Ten wonderful designs capture the qualities that make bears so adored by all. They include Jolly, who demands to be cuddled all night long and Barney who, with his uniquely bent legs, will happily sit anywhere. Bracken's back reveals a hidden compartment for stowing secrets. Teddy Edward, a traditional, fully-jointed bear fashioned from golden mohair, is destined to become a family favourite. The Embroidered Bears are four colourful felt teddies, each embroidered with delightful seasonal motifs. To ensure that every one of the bears featured will be enjoyed by all ages, each is made using materials and methods that are designed to withstand the most energetic of hugs. Step-by-step colour photographs ensure that each stage of bear making is easy to follow from tracing the patterns and cutting out the fabric, to adding the features and personalising the finished bear. Whoever these bears are being made for each is sure to become a treasured companion, to be passed down through the generations and cherished by all.
