Tiny Teddy Bears to Weave on Hello Looms

When I was designing the Teddy Bears for the 2022 Summer Weaving Challenge, it struck me that weaving very tiny teddies for the teddy bears would be fun.

I decided that the very smallest looms from Hello! Looms would be wonderful to make ever so teeny tiny teddies.

I also made them a little bed…..

Saffron Teddy Bear for the 2022 Summer Weaving Challenge- How to Weave the Teddy Bear Arm

Sampling for a weaving project is a really good idea that most weavers often avoid doing.

But, weaving a small sample can give so much information to the weaver that it is a huge benefit.

Weaving the arms for the Saffron Teddy Bears is a win/win in the sampling department 🙂

The arms are small, but will quickly show you if your yarn is going to make a pleasing fabric for your teddy bear.

If not, then it’s better to make adjustments and weave it over again, rather than committing to weaving the whole body and then finding that the yarn doesn’t work.

So, start your bear by weaving an arm first.

You’ll be glad you did!

Saffron Teddy Bear – How to Weave the Body Lots of Different Ways

When I started designing the Teddy Bears to weave on the Saffron loom from Mirrix for the

2022 Summer Weaving Challenge, I had NO IDEA that I would go down such an amazing Rabbit Hole

There are so many ways to weave the Saffron Teddy Bear.

Even though the same basic ‘recipe’ is used to weave all the bodies, using different weaving techniques and different weights of yarns makes each of the Saffron Bears totally unique.

Here are some video tutorials showing how to weave the variations of the Saffron Bear’s Body:
