Yeehar! I’ve finally had the chance to update my Polar Bear Sewing Pattern. When I first designed Preston Polar Bear, I originally designed him in fleece. He is very cuddly and huggable in fleece fabric BUT the pattern didn’t work very well sewn in woven fabrics like quilting cottons. This is why I have been reworking my older patterns…
… and NOW I’m excited to say ~>
Preston is ready to go out into the big wide world AGAIN!
Here is a pic of me holding Preston Polar Bear so you can get an idea of his actual size… he has “sewn in legs” that can swing down, so he can sit and stand.
What fabrics can you use for a sewing a Polar Bear Toy?
Preston can be sewn in most fabrics. He works well in both non-stretch fabrics (like cotton, corduroy and quilting fabrics) as well as stretchy/knit fabrics (like fleece, Cuddle, minky and similar fabrics). ~>
Preston Polar Bear will look good in all sorts of colours and textures…
Just look at
Is there a Polar Bear Pattern tutorial?

Bye for now
Looking forward to adding another bear to the “family”.
Hey Shirley! Thanks for your enthusiasm for my ‘family’ of bears! 🙂
I love all your patterns and the bears are so cute. My favorite one is calico but I have a hard time with the button joints because I don’t have the strength in my hands to pull it as tight as it needs to be. I do love polar bears and I think this one will be fun to make.
Hi Teresa, thank you!!! Yes, the sewn in the seam limbs will definitely be better for you! 🙂
Thanks Pauline for re-releasing Preston!! What a happy surprise on a Monday morning, I’ve been waiting for him!
You have: How to sew a Panda Bear, instead of Polar Bear on the photos below the link for the See-Me-Sew tutorial.
Thanks Quincy!!!! (You can tell what pattern I was working on before Preston! )
