Everything you need to create Mini Me outfits for your little ones and their teddy
With this sewing pattern create a very special BFF (Best Friend Forever) for your little one, give teddy a name and encourage them to start their adventures together.
Teddy is designed for you to sew on a standard sewing machine. I like to use an upholstery weight plain calico for the body, with a ‘feature’ fabric for the ears and paws or you could choose a cute cotton print or quilting cotton.
Small pattern pieces make this project a great scrap buster. You can even make teddy from fabric remnants or old clothes, creating your own totally unique memory bear.
It is possible to sew teddy by hand, wool felt works best, simply adjust the seam allowances depending upon your construction method.
Remember, whatever fabric you choose will make your teddy unique to you and your adventure. #teddyandme #MakeTeddy

Dress your little one (age 3-12) and their teddy in their matching outfits, designed by teddyand.me, made unique by you and ready for fun times adventuring together.
With this sewing pattern you can create this funky twist on a raglan sleeve tshirt. Designed for you to sew on a standard sewing machine, or an overlocker/serger. You can use any ‘tshirt weight’ jersey fabrics, however the patchwork ‘vortex’ uses fusible interfacing to stabilise the fabrics so you can mix weights, patterns and textures here.
This pattern has been especially designed to encourage you to upcycle old tshirts loitering at the back of your wardrobe or charity shop finds and the ‘vortex’ motif is a great scrap buster helping you put all those perfect little pieces of jersey and stretch material to great use.
Remember, whatever fabric combination you choose will make your shirt unique to you. Embrace your creativity, go wild and make your very own #VortexTshirt #teddyandme

Make matching ArtyPants for your little one and their teddy, teddyand.me clothes patterns are designed for adventuring together, so these button-tab roll up trousers or shorts are simply perfect whatever activities your kids enjoy.
The teddyand.me ArtyPants in ages 3-12, are designed for you to sew on a standard sewing machine and we also explain how to create a professional finish using French Seams.
You can use any cotton or shirting fabrics. Choosing fabrics of a similar weight will make the colour blocking of the main garment easier. However, a mix of textures, patterns and colours will give your garment it’s individual style.
This pattern has been especially designed to upcycle men’s shirts, these might be hiding at the back of the wardrobe or discovered at a car boot sale. In the pattern we explore how to make the most of the original garment’s features in your design. The larger sizes will require bigger shirts or you can mix-it-up with off-cuts of fabric from your stash, this could be the perfect scrap busting project for you.
Remember, whatever fabric combination you choose, it will make your 2-in1 trousers/shorts unique to you. Embrace your creativity, go wild and make your own #ArtyPants #teddyandme

What People say about our patterns
I pattern tested the #MakeTeddy pattern using upcycled fabrics from my daughters treasured baby clothes.
Following the birth of my much-loved first child I was diagnosed with PND and six years later I had been struggling to let go of her childhood clothes as it brought back mixed emotions. Making these special clothes into teddy helped me recognize that my PND would always be a part of my history, but it is not who we are today. After some tearful nights, quiet moments and learning some new sewing skills a bear was born. Made with love, for my little girl, giving it to her I held them both close and cried with love. She has named her bear Honey.
I am a big supporter of The British Heart Foundation after my youngest child was diagnosed with Coarctation of the Aorta at just 12 days old. He had surgery 7 weeks later to repair the coarctation, but his aorta is not growing as it should so we are awaiting a catheter procedure and he will require several valves to be replaced. However, he is a very happy boy who copies everything his big brother does and he is a total delight. I wanted to show my support for the BHF, so I decided to entre this years #TheBigStitch, I volunteered to pattern test the #VortexTshirt pattern as it was perfect for upcycling the 3 t-shirts I had purchased from the BHF shop. I was nervous about sewing jersey fabrics, but the pattern came together beautifully and the effect of mixing the 3 tshirts is just brilliant. I made the Tshirt for my middle child and both he and I are made up with the result!
I’m a chemistry teacher by profession and love all things science, but I am also a self-confessed craft-a-holic, with crochet and patchwork being my main passions.
When I pattern tested the #MakeTeddy pattern I wanted to bring my two loves together so I chose these fabulous science themed fabrics for my teddy. I was concerned whether I would manage to handle all of the little pieces of the pattern, but I followed the instructions to the letter and I really enjoyed it. I did find some bits tricky, especially the feet, but the pattern book guided me through and I am thrilled with the results. Science Ted now lives in our lab at school keeping a watchful eye on everything.
I contacted teddyand.me after I saw a post on Facebook calling out for pattern testers of the #VortexTshirt - I was keen to have a go.
I really like the look of the pattern and although I found parts quite difficult, once I got my head around it I found it went together quickly.
I think confident sewists would enjoy this pattern. I used scraps of leftover dinosaur fabric, we are BIG DINO fans in this house and my finished tshirt is lovely, nice and funky.
