If you're looking for an easy memory bear pattern, Ben the Beginner Bear is perfect for you!

This chubby baby bear has been designed for new sewers.  Ben is easy to sew, with no complicated arm or leg joints and he sits up on his own and has a very wide, totally FLAT, single-piece tummy – perfect for displaying images from t-shirts and baby clothes.

He has a 5inch (12cm) square grid on his tummy piece so you can quickly centre the fabric design! His feet also have a 4 inch (10cm) square grid - so LOTS of room for adding names and dates.

Fabric Size Guide

As the image shows, we cut our fabrics by the Fat Quarter, Half Metre, 3/4 Metre and Full Metre.

Fabric size guide

Fat Quarter = 55cm wide x 50cm long (21" x 19")

Half Metre = 110cm wide x 50cm long (43" x 19")

3/4 Metre = 110cm wide x 75cm long (43" x 29")

Full Metre = 110cm wide x 100cm long (43" x 39")

Please note that this is a rough guide as the fabrics can vary slightly in width. 

Once you have found a fabric you like, you'll see on the page there is a box called 'Quantity'.  You can either type directly into this box, or use the up and down arrows as appropriate.

You can decide how much you would like to buy using the Quantity box. If you only want 1 Fat Quarter leave the Quantity box with ‘1’. If you would like Half Metre type '2' into the box (or use the Up Arrow to increase the quantity). If you would like 3/4 Metre type '3' into the box, and so on.

You can refer to our chart for larger quantities.

Finally, click 'Add to Basket' and this will add the fabric to your Shopping Basket ready for you to check out.
Any amount you select will be cut as one continuous piece, unless otherwise specified, although please be aware that rolls do have a finite length so on some occasions it may be unavoidable for your fabric to be in multiple pieces.  In this instance, we will make effort to contact you, so please ensure that the information you enter at checkout is accurate.
