Looking over the instructions and the pattern we find it to be a very concise and detailed; easy for the beginner and the accomplished bear maker. 


40 pages of instructions including the original Brian bear pattern.


Colored photos throughout, showing you exactly what to do as you go along. Some page photos shown here.


There is a nice supply list and suggestions on fabrics to use. You'll even learn how to mold and attach the cute bear nose!


This booklet is a lovely edition to any bear makers studio and it will inspire the wannabe-bearmaker to get started!

Same "Brian" Pattern

Various modifications

Here is Brian the pattern as Lancelot. He is made with wonderful rust colored alpaca and given him some buzzard colored glass eyes.

And little Emma. She is made with twisted light pink alpaca and has buzzard eyes too.

Here is another bear named Memphis. He is made with taupe mohair and I have trimmed the fur from around his nose and given him buzzard eyes

By changing the ears, Brian Bear became a dog. Spots were hand painted on the alpaca fur. Let your imagination soar!


I used different mohair and created Rhonda using the same pattern.

I have not altered Sarah Jane much at all, except for giving her colored eyes and long lashes.

Brian-Bears made by some of our pattern and DVD purchasers.

Ann made her Brian too!

Sam N. made two 'Brian' patterns using a plush fabric. These two are ready to go boot-scooting!
