Teddy bear

Teddy bear

Someone recently asked me about making a teddy bear, and here’s a one-balloon version. I followed these directions from balloondesigns.net. The purple teddy bear is what you’ll end up with if you follow the instructions above exactly.

Tips: You’ll want to leave almost a 5″ tail when pumping the balloon. When twisting the series of seven bubbles to form the head, twist the 4th and 6th bubbles a little smaller than the others, so that the ears will not be so large. You can draw two different faces – one on each side!

The pink teddy bear is another version. This one has a neck, a tail, and uses only one balloon for the body. I left about a 4″ tail to make this one.
