The original Beauregard is now fourteen years old and well-loved. Download your free Sis Boom Beauregard Bear Pattern + Tutorial, and give someone you love something special for Valentine’s Day (or just because!)…

From Jennifer and Carla: We ♥ our Chenille bear! We made this Beauregard from a vintage chenille blanket, but you can create yours with minky or another soft plush! Filled with love and ready to comfort, Beauregard gives great hugs… You can make a whole family of bears in sizes small through large for cuddling, home decor, or both!
