Teddy bears are a favourite form of soft toy for amateur toy makers, with many patterns commercially produced or available online. Many “teddies” are home-made as gifts or for charity, while “teddy bear artists” often create “teddies” for retail, decorating them individually with commercial and recycled ornaments such as sequins, beads and ribbons . Sewn teddy bears are made from a wide range of materials including felt, cotton and velour. While many are stitched, others are made from yarn, either knitted or crocheted. Teddy bears are also made of plywood and a range of other craft materials.
