No Sew DIY Towel Teddy Bear
Who doesn’t love a cuddly teddy bear!
How about making our own teddy bear at home in 10 minutes from a hand towel?
So here is an easy Peasy method of making a teddy bear in which kids can take part too and you don’t even much supplies or skills for it.. it’s a no-sew teddy bear.
The benefit of making a teddy bear with hand towel is that –
- No risk of suffocating
- Wash it anytime
- Make a teddy bear of any color or size
- Baby can sleep with it too
- No worry of fine dust or particles for younger babies
- Dismantle and use the towel when the baby is bored of it
- No wastage
Convinced by the above listed benefits? So let’s get started to make our cuddly teddy.
- Hand towel – any size, any color, any design
- Rubber bands
- Googly eyes (optional)
Step 1: Lay the towel flat on a surface
Step 2: Take an idea of the center of the towel and Fold one (Shorter) end till the middle of the towel
Step 3: Start rolling/ folding from the longer side till the center of the towel like making a pipe
Step 4: Repeat step 3 from the other longer side, fold till the middle. Now both sides are rolled till center and it looks like 2 pipes together
Step 5: Turn it upside down, keeping rolled sides face down
Step 6: Twist half of the roll upwards (towards left as opening it up), from the side with folded end inside (side folded in step 2)
Step 7: Turn the other end backwards from the middle, rolling it over the other already half folded side (reducing length of pipes to half)
Step 8: Open it up from corners and wrap backwards, you will see ears forming on upper side (folded end)
Step 9: Tie a rubber band from folded side, so as to secure face
Step 10: Smoothen out the front body crease and Tie rubber bands on sides for ears
Step 11: the Back side might still have foldings, but the front looks neat teddy bear shaped
Step 12: Tie ribbon over the neck rubber band and stick googly eyes on it’s face. Stick buttons too (totally optional).
Ok, I agree following written instructions can be difficult, so here is a video tutorial.
Did you like the easy no-sew teddy bear?
I had already made 2 bears – a brown and a purple and they both are sleeping in their bed as I type this post.
I am happy that I figured this towel teddy bear out as my son has dust allergy and the soft toys are prone to accumulating dust even if washed regularly.
So I used to be always paranoid for my son playing with furry teddy or holding it too close to body or sleeping with it..
But now with this cute no-sew towel teddy bear, I just washed away my worries. Now this teddy can go for a bath at night and be ready again in the morning for playing. How cool is that!
