Hi everyone! I recently had the need to make my son’s bear some clothes. I was not having any luck finding teddy bear clothes patterns I wanted so I decided to make something myself. I made his bear a T-shirt out of knit fabric.
I drafted his bear a “sloper”. Then made a T-shirt pattern. I have not seen many teddy bear T-shirt patterns out there so I’m going to put one out there for everyone to enjoy. It’s free when you sign up for my email listing. Please note: This pattern is free and is for the public. If you do decide to share your make on social media it would help me a great deal if you tag me (@winmichele for Instagram), or mention my website (www.winmichele.com).
Things to point out:
-This PDF does not come with full length illustrated directions. Just an abbreviated version of directions on the PDF itself.
-Please, when printing select to print in “actual size”. Check the square gauge on the first page to make sure that the pattern is printing in the correct scale.
-Download and print off of Adobe Acrobat only.
*NOTE: The PDF you will not need to paste together. All pattern pieces fit within the borders of the layout.
This pattern is made for knit fabrics with a 50% stretch. Please see the gauge on the PDF to double-check if your fabric meets the requirements.
I had placed the t-shirt on two different bears for fit reference. Let me give you the measurements of both bears for reference.
The Build A Bear brand:
Neck: 12″ circumference
Chest: 16″ circumference
Seat: 18″ circumference
This unknown brand:
Neck: 9″ circumference
Chest: 15″ circumference
Seat: 17″ circumference
