DIY Bear for Valentine’s Day Sewing Tutorial

Fun bear themed sewing project for kids.

This Valentine Bear is easy and fun to sew! Simply print out the template and cut out as directed by the pattern Stitch together using a whip stitch (what we used) or blanket stitch (if you wanted to a bit fancier).

You can sew the little heart on at the end, but I recommend sewing it to one layer first, before sewing the two sites of the bear together. You will also want to embroider the face on first, if you choose to embroider it instead of drawing. My girls are all drawing faces using Sharpie pens. This sewing project is easy enough that my four-year-old daughter was able to sew her bear completely on her own! She has even started to sew a second bear. My older girls are still working on their original bears – they have a lot less free time since they are currently in school.

  1. Love your little Valentines bears…and that glitter nail polish is just perfect! I loved seeing your 4 year old sewing with a real needle, 4 year old can be amazingly capable when they want to :)
