Stitchqueries: Finding Stitch and Stuff Bear Pattern

This week’s stitchqueries is a little bit different. This is a plea for help in finding a pattern …. Janet emailed me a few weeks ago looking for a pattern of a bear with his arms up where you stitch his face sweater and toes then cut out the bear sew him together and stuff him.

I had never seen a pattern like this before, and I was coming up empty on searches. I’m usually pretty keen at hunting things down online, so I asked if she had any other information on the pattern. While we don’t have the designer or pattern name, she came back with this photo to help in the hunt…

If you recognize this cute little guy please let us know! Janet is seeking him and wants to stitch one up.

Thank you for your help and happy stitching!
