What you need to know

Val Pierce's classic teddy bear toy comes with a bag that doubles up as a bed.

Sure to become a firm favourite, our classic teddy bear toy is easy to knit and comes with a pretty pink and white outfit. When our bear is sleepy, simply tuck them into this charming patchwork bed which can be folded up to produce a handy bag. The decorative daisy pattern on the bed cover is added afterwards. This project does have small parts which could be a safety hazard for young children, so check out the advice included with your pattern for alternative suggestions.
