i made these bears from a pattern! they have bendy arms and legs. i really want to post some sort of tute soon because i couldnt for the life of me find bear joints online , well, i did, but they didnt reply to my questions coz i couldnt figure out he order forms in comparison to the pattern requirements... anyway, i ended up using electrical wires and buttons.

the bears are made from denim of this awsome guy ben, who passed away... supposedly these bears look like him and are made from his old clothes...

They're very nice!  I love the clothes.

Did the buttons and wire work out for you okay?  I used buttons and hairpins on mine, but they were way tiny.

those are some nice bears! I love the look of the denim bear. I just may have to do something similar as well because they look amazing. And I have tons of jeans laying around. Smiley And any tips on the joints are always nice to know. Smiley

those are so cute!!!my cousin wanted a bear awhile back and she also wanted it to have possable joints. I searched and searched for tips but couldn't find any so I decided to buy huge snaps from Joanns and sew them on by hand.(after everything was sewn and stuffed) it works pretty well but doesn't allow for that much mobility.

I've never looked, but I read in a book once that you can find joints for stuff like that at like a hardware store...you know, places like that little hardware store in town that has EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE in it? look there. (just a suggestion...)

the bears are great - they look really well made.

i think it's a great idea to use the clothing of someone who has passed away to create awesome things out of.
