Join expert teddy bear maker Anke Morgenroth from Bear Essentials and make your very own wonderful teddy bear or stuffed animal. Choose from a selection of bears and other animals, all made from different soft plush fabrics that are partially sewn up. Then build your bear by stuffing them and sewing them, before getting as creative as you like to customise your bear with ribbons, material and buttons. Everyone in the family can join in and help make each bear. We recommend that younger children are assisted by an adult.
