Meet my new friend, Henderson. He is a pre-printed panel bear that I found on etsy or ebay a couple of years ago. The title on the instructions call him "The V.I.P. Bear." The panel has all the pre-printed pieces, you cut them out and follow the directions. I love to make teddy bears. I have a pattern for a 16" bear that I make with mohair fake fur fat quarters, but I couldn't resist this fella when I saw him for sale.
I fashioned his vest from a sewing tutorial I found on youtube. All I needed was the shape and I had a vest.
