Bearmaking 101 :
An Ins''Bear''Ational Course
Teddy bear devotees can tell you that each bear has
its very own personality, and this is certainly evident in Carol-Lynn Rössel
Waugh's Bearmaking 101. Her book, the author declares, is a realm "in
which teddy bears pass through dimensional barriers between ordinary reality
and imagination to take up residence in the hearts and minds of unsuspecting
humans." Waugh establishes an alternate world of unique bear
characters, and through this framework the bears themselves guide us on a
journey of discovery, helping the author to teach us to create easy
single-pattern-piece bears, multi-jointed and gusseted bears, marionette
bears, hand puppet bears, and tiny teddies. She supplies superbly detailed
instructions and complete patterns for the 12 projects, plus extensive
coverage of basics like fabric choices, supplies, stitching tips, and
jointing directions. This engaging introduction to creating wonderful teddy
bears is specific enough for first-timers, yet imaginative enough to serve
more experienced bear makers.

How to Design & Make Great Teddy Bear's
Always a closet bear-lover, Jennifer Laing still
has her childhood Steiff and Hermann bears. Her personal collection is small
but cherished, a few old Steiff bears and some examples from her favorite
international bear artists.
After gaining a B.A. in Science and studying art for
two years, Jennifer was a freelance commercial artist and then held a
variety of other jobs including aerobics instructor, personal trainer and
ski instructor! In 1990 she managed Australia's largest teddy bear shop
where she first began making bears; sewing standing up behind the counter in
Jennifer was the first Australian bear artist to work
solely in mohair. She hand-stitches all her bears and works alone, only
making 70-100 bears a year. She has won many international awards, and is
Australia's best known bear artist. Jennifer is active in charity
fund-raising, using her bears to help raise money for animal and wildlife
conservation groups, such as Liberty and The Sea Shepherd Society.
Jennifer's designs are constantly changing and she
generally only makes editions of five or ten. The largest editions she has
done are of 25, and they have been for the Walt Disney World Doll and Teddy
Bear Conventions (1994, 1995, and 1997). She was also invited back to Disney
World for 1996 and 1998, but had to decline due to the size of her waiting
list. She cannot take wholesale orders as she has over three years of
personal orders on her waiting list.
Jennifer teaches all levels of bear making and her
workshops are keenly attended around the world. She is currently working on
her fourth bear book.
Expert Australian teddy bear maker Jennifer Laing shows
you her techniques for sewing the world's most huggable bears! This brand
new book is the long awaited sequel to Jennifer's The Art of Making Teddy
Bears. 96 pages.
