I have just finished this teddy bear. Em's teacher is just about to have a baby, so I thought it was a great time to try this pattern out. I found the pattern in a pull-out in a Simply Knitting magazine last spring. The pattern is designed by Laura Long and is found in the book "Knitted Toy Tales" as well.
The pattern had you seaming the back like a fabric toy, with right sides together and turning it back out. I changed this to a mattress-stitched seam.
I really like this pattern and I am now making a scarf for the wee fellow.
