How are Commonfolke bears made?
Week OneMy seamstresses and I begin cutting fabric and pinning patterns in preparation to be sewn. Bears are machine sewn, trimmed, packed, and if applicable, sent to our home office.
Week TwoBears are stuffed and sent off to our embroiderers.
Week ThreeBears faces are delicately hand embroidered (by myself and/or wonderful team of fellow moms), and they are sent back to us.
Week FourEvery bear is inspected for quality, and is then sewn closed, numbered, and packaged for shipping.
This is just a rough guide on the entire process that takes place to make each bear. Sometimes things go more quickly or slowly, keeping in mind that we at COMMONFOLKE are all mothers and/or wives with families of our own.
