Kawaii Teddy Bear

Another character has been pulled out for their own print-on-demand products – the brown bear from my Autumn Bears pattern.

I already have individual products featuring versions of the other 3 bears, and a brown bear was one of my most popular characters back in the early days. This round bear is a lot cuter though so I’ve officially called him a Teddy Bear.

Both characters are now available at Redbubble, Society6 (scroll down for all products), TeePublic & Zazzle on all the usual fun products – apparel, stationery, art, phone cases, bags, homeware, kitchenware, bedding and lots more. I made a simple pattern for some products and you’ll also find the original Autumn Bears pattern in each shop.
