Bailey Bear softie pattern

Super Easy!


- +

Bailey is a great teddy bear for any age. There are no buttons or other small parts that would be a choking hazard for a baby. You can make it up in soft baby fabrics - or funky fabrics and fun prints for older kids. It's especially fun to choose a fabric with texture for the tummy patch - corduroy, chenille, velvet, flannel, etc.

This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly and ready to print onto letter-size paper. No shipping costs and no waiting! If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.

  • full-sized pattern pieces – no enlarging needed

He's just a smidge under 10 inches tall and 5 inches wide.


Super easy! Bailey Bear is a great project for beginners. In fact - I often use him as a starter pattern when I teach kids how to use a sewing machine! 

Materials Needed

You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

You'll need. . .

  • 1/3 yard main fabric
  • scraps of fabric for ear linings and tummy
  • scrap of felt for nose
  • embroidery thread
  • polyfill stuffing (I like Soft Touch Polyfil Supreme Fiberfill)

You might also want. . .

  • two 9mm black safety eyes (if you're making it for someone over 3 years old)

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

Bought this for my wife she loves it, a joy to make.

Easy to Follow

As someone who is not great at following instruction, sewing, and working with an 80-year-old sewing machine, I found Wendi's Bailey Bears wonderful and easy to follow. They were a great compliment for the quilt that I worked on.
