Stuffed Felt Polar Bear
Hoop Size 5x7 & 6x10
This small stuffed felt Polar Bear, complete with a salmon, is a perfect gift for a child or to decorate a nursery and it makes for a great quick gift.
The polar bear is created quickly and easily in a single hooping, and it is stitched directly on hooped felt – no stabilizer needed. When it’s finished stitching, stuff it and sew the small opening closed and it’s finished. I strongly recommend using pillow stuffing (you can purchase really inexpensive pillows from Walmart and Target) instead of craft polyfil – the craft fill is hard, dense and lumpy whereas bed pillows are light, fluffy and much easier to stuff into small places.
Two sizes are included: the 5x7 hoop makes a polar bear about 6.5” tall and the 6x10 hoop makes one about 7.5” tall. The design files measure 5” x 6.6” (3000 stitches) and 5.9” x 7.8” (3600 stitches).
The polar bear is also available as part of an arctic set under the stuffed menu category. The license to use these designs for machine embroidery was purchased from a hand-sewing pattern designer out of Toronto.
Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
