“Please look after this Bear”
Mr and Mrs Brown first met Paddington on a railway platform. In fact, that was how he came to have such an unusual name for a bear, for Paddington was the name of the station.

To supplement the pattern, I've updated this post on 9th January 2015 to now include photos of Paddington without his clothes on! - to show how he is constructed. I hope these pictures will be helpful.
Previously the pattern was included in this post but to save space and to look less cluttered I have removed the text of the pattern. The pattern can be accessed through the PDF link. It is also available as a free download on Ravelry, HERE.
