Polar bears may be endangered by global warming, but there’s no danger of not falling in love with these DIY miniature polar bears. Tatiana Scalozub has created marvelous miniature polar bear babies and offers kits and patterns so you can make your own. From soft furlike fabric to tiny German-made black eyes and miniature joint disks to articulate your baby, the polar bear kit includes everything you need to make a lifelike miniature. While the patterns don’t include the materials, the instructions are detailed enough for any motivated do-it-yourselfer to have success.
Inspired by Flocke, the real-life polar bear born in Nuremburg, an Etsy artist from Odessa, Ukrane created the miniature-polar-bear pattern. She has also designed patterns for making pandas, rabbits and other endearing animal babies. All are available at Scalozub’s TSminiBears shop.
