Hey guys! Lately I’ve been hard at work creating a DIY Care Bear Plush Tutorial with a special free felt pattern. And if you haven’t already heard, this week I’ll be a guest camp counselor at Camp Care Bears! This is such a huge honor! I’m a big kid at heart and I just loved the Care Bears as a kid (still do!), So I’m super psyched!
Can you guess the other part of the big news? That’s right, I’m co-hosting a giveaway with Camp Care Bears! You could win your very own set of handmade, Care Bears inspired artist bears made by yours truly!
Head on over to the Care Bears Instagram page to find out how to enter!
Make Your Own Care Bear Plush Teddy Bears
I made these adorable string jointed plush teddy bears with my Fuzzy Teddy Bear Sewing Pattern, then added cute hand sewn felt tummy symbols to the bears.
Want to make your own Care Bears? I’ve created a felt Care Bears PDF and SVG pattern to add to your handmade bears. And you can have it for free! There’s a full DIY Care Bear plush sewing tutorial, along with videos on how to sew together the belly symbols.
Teeny Tiny Handmade Bears
I had so much fun sewing piles and piles of care bear plush and teeny tiny teddies too! I’m still not finished! I love them so much that I’m adding a full set of tiny Care Bears to my personal collection and to gift to special friends.
Want to attempt your own tiny Care Bears? I made a quick video showing how I hand embroider tiny belly symbols onto the tiny bears.
I hope you enjoyed the video! If you decide to make your own Care Bears, or any tiny bears, I’d love to see them!
Now head one over to the Care Bears Tummy Symbol PDF and Bear Tutorial to see how you can make your on Care Bears Plush!
