Attention! When using these materials, you get bear 16 cm tall. I draw your attention to the fact that an exact copy bear, even the author does not always succeed. You need to knit tight stuff tight enough. The bear is not fat!
Follow the recommendations, compare the result with the photo for getting the closest copy.
Lower legs (2 pcs.)
I use a marker in knitting thread designating the beginning of a row.

The paws will be reinforced, therefore prepare the wire.
Wire length depends on height paws. Be guided by the photo.
Cook the frame immediately on 2 legs, to make them work symmetrical.
Bend one edge with a loop, we form the foot, so the loop should be in size (slightly smaller). Wrap the loop adhesive plaster or electrical tape.
We bend a little at an angle of 45. Under do not bend at right angles, do not will pass into the paw!
Before installing the frame, a little fill the foot. Insert wire and start tight stuff the paw to the middle of the thigh, leaving space for the disk.
Prepared two paws, compared proportionality, let’s get down to mount. Prepare disks 4pcs,
cotter pins 2 pcs. (18mm, 20 * 2.0).
Right paw – 2 rows down, left –
3 rows down.
See according to the circumstances
the mount can stand in one
row on the right and on the left paw.
Do not forget, the bear has a right and
At this stage, we shorten
wire, bite off the length and
we bend it without interfering with the cotter pin (see.
Photo). I don’t wrap this edge
electrical tape (adhesive plaster). You
you can do everything according to the rules.
Between disc and knitted

We fill the paw to the end. Upper
part of the thigh is not packed tightly,
avoid bulky hips.

reinforcement of paws. Length 1.5-2
cm larger than paws. Make
eyelets at the ends of the wire
using pliers and
wrap with adhesive tape
(with electrical tape).
The wire should not

Fill in the brush a little, insert
wire. We fill tightly until
half of the paw.
Prepare discs, cotter pins for
paws. Install the cotter pin 2 rows
down. Again, don’t forget
right and left paws, cotter pins
look at each other !!!
We do not stuff the top of the paw tightly,
where the disk is installed, at all
airy. It is important for us simply
cover the cotter pin, disc and make
the shoulder is not bulky.

Stuff your head, mark the spot
installing the cotter pin. Take away
filler, install the cotter pin and
head again, see more
time. If everything suits you, you can
continue to work further.

For tightening you need a strong thread to match the yarn. We fix at point (1),
as close to the disk as possible.

Do not tighten the loop formed at point (4), (5) immediately. We help
pull up, while squeezing the bridge of the nose with your fingers. When do you
first tightening, repeat the path of the needle from point (2) (3) (4) (5) (1), so
your bind will be stronger. At point (1) we fix the tightening, but the thread
do not cut.
Return to point (2)

3.9Sc. Fasten the thread, leave for sewing.
4. Sew on the ears approximately in the 23rd row.
Make the muzzle to your liking. I am embroidering in a chaotic manner
the nose with a floss thread, we embroider eyebrows with the same thread. You can
glue the finished nose or mold from polymer clay. It’s your
bear, and you decide what it will be.
Find the place where the eyes are attached. Before I sew on, I tint the place
under the eyes. I use dry art pastels. Tinting
I run it with a wet brush. If everything works out, you can sew on the eyes.
If eyes with Aliexpress are on the leg:
1 way. We must tie a thread to the leg on a knot, fasten
super glue. Next, we take a knitting needle or a thick needle and make a hole in
which we will insert the eye, expand it so that when sewing on the eyes
drowned in yarn a little.
2 way. Bend the leg with a loop, tie a thread to the loop, and then
the procedure is similar to the first method.
When sewing eyes, lead the threads into the hole from the back
heads. I withdraw one thread from one eye, then similarly the second and
I tie it into three knots, drawing my eyes a little.

For a scarf, we need cotton fabric 5cm * 45cm natural coffee.

How to dye fabric.
1) Make coffee. The amount of coffee you need depends
how dark you want the fabric to be. Turn off
hotplate after boiling.
2) Immerse a cloth in the coffee solution, stir gently to
air pockets are gone. Leave it on for a while.
3) Take out the cloth, rinse from coffee grains and dry.
