Berneyle Pittman, a nurse and self-taught teddy bear artist whose childhood in Alaska instilled a deep love of working with fur, has published his latest book “From Hide to Hugs: A Manual on Making Fur Teddy Bears”: a practical guide to working with fur that offers her vast experience to help novice and experienced craftspeople alike create teddy bears and other animals from various types of fur.

The author writes, “My name is Berneyle Pittman, and I am proud to present to you my book, ‘From Hide to Hugs’. This book is a manual on how to make fur teddy bears from any fur garment to a finished bear with claws, glass eyes, and an open smiling mouth with lips and teeth. It is ideal for the bear maker with experience and if followed step by step, a novice can also do well.

A real-bear teddy bear and my marsupial Koala teddy bear patterns are included with step-by-step instructions and illustrations designed to encourage you to explore and experiment with every aspect of making a fur bear. I have included every secret and technique I know to make this as easy and successful as possible. Included are photographs of some of the bears and animals I have made from fur using these very techniques. When you have completed your bear, you will have the foundation to make any animal from real fur.

It is my hope that through this book, you will hone your fur skills and have the ability to transform your other bear-making ideas into those made from fur.”
Published by Page Publishing, Berneyle Pittman’s engrossing book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in creating their own fur teddy bears.
