How cute is this little fellow?

My best friend’s daughter is pregnant, and she wanted books for her baby shower. So of course, I bought her the full set of Paddington Bear books to go with this little Paddington look-alike that I made for her.

This bear uses my Smokey Bear pattern, minus the pants. Have a look below:

Here we see a plush bear toy that has been hand sewn and inverted, but it lacks stuffing. The watermark says, "Chelly Wood."

To make my Paddington Bear look-alike plush toy, you can use the Smokey pattern that I’ve included with the bullets at the bottom of this post, but don’t forget to leave your Paddington Bear’s crotch open, so you can invert him:

In this image, a plus bear lay on a white table. We see it inside-out, with the seams exposed. The seams go all the way around the edges of the 2-dimensional bear, but they stop just shy of the crotch area. Red arrows point to where the seams stop upon nearing the crotch, to allow a place for inverting. The watermark says, "Chelly Wood."

And it’s also important to note that you have to clip your seams before inverting:

In this close-up photograph, Chelly Wood's fingers press against the seam of the plush bear, showing that she has clipped this seam very close to the stitching without cutting through the stitches. The watermark says "Chelly Wood."

My Ever After High doll‘s “Saucy Hat” pattern was used to make my Paddington style hat, and I used red craft felt instead of cotton. But I think you could probably use solid red cotton as well. Click here for the pattern and tutorial for making this adorable Paddington Bear hat.

And of course, more patterns for clothes to fit him will be coming! I’m working on making a little blue hooded jacket that looks like Paddington‘s, and I’ve already made him an adorable Hawaiian shirt with black trousers:

Here we see a little tan bear made of flannel with felt eyes and a felt nose. His paws and ears also have felt. He wears a red, black, and white splotchy Hawaiian style shirt with a collar. He also wears black trousers. The watermark says, "Chelly Wood."

    1. No, I’m sorry. I don’t. I’m not as good at sewing for people. I mean, I can and do make clothes for myself and family from time to time, but I also know my true talent lies in the creation and construction of doll clothes patterns.

      1. I will try to see if I can upsize it for myself. Worse comes to worse, I screw it up and no one will ever know. Haha. It is still and inspiration.
