Bertie is a tubby teddy, whichever way you look at it, but give him a balloon and he’s away. And he’s got a taste for adventure, so you’ll have to make sure you hold on to him tightly. This dungaree-clad cutie is worked in the round in simple dc stitches and is really brought to life by the tiny extra details, such as his buttons and laces. Stitch on a smile and he’s yours forever.

The pattern is worked using the amigurumi method. Work in a continuous spiral without closing off the round with a ss. It may help to use a stitch marker in the stitch of each round, moving it up as you work.

You will need:

  • Safety eyes or black beads (about 5mm/2/10inc diameter)
  • 2 small buttons
  • Dark brown waxed cord
  • Fine white wire for balloon string, approx 13cm (5in)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch markers
  • Toy stuffing
  • Craft glue
