How much does it cost to make one bear?

Basic materials
Finished toy size about 15 cm
  1. 1/8 (35x50cm) piece of colored viscose - from 480 rubles for Helmbold and from 700 rubles for Schulte (there are different types of viscose, ranging from fluffy, curly and ending with hand-colored viscose, which is more expensive than factory)
  2. 10 discs (4 for the handles, 4 for the legs and 2 for the head) - I recommend taking the discs from the firm - fiber, they are strong and reliable. The discs that we need in our work have a diameter of 15 to 22mm, they cost an average of 50 rubles per set of 10 discs
  3. T-shaped split pins - 4 pcs, in the store they are sold in a set of 10 pcs, cost 35 rubles; O-shaped - 2 pcs, sold in the same set of 10 pcs, cost from 30-35 rubles (depending on the size of the bear you want to make)
  4. Black glossy eyes - from 50 to 70 rubles per pair (I usually use 3mm)
Additional materials
  1. Waxed thread for stitching parts: 100m of thread costs 200 rubles (we select the thread for the base of viscose)
  2. Reinforced threads (strong)
  3. Brown threads iris for nose embroidery: a ball of 25g - 80 rubles
  4. Sawdust of two fractions: small and large. It is not necessary to buy in specialized stores, I buy in pet stores. In stores for bear makers there are already ready-made sawdust of a large fraction cost 50 rubles for 250 g, and granular sawdust 50 rubles for 1 kg
  5. Metal granulate 1.4mm - 0.5kg for 60 rubles
  6. Adhesive for processing textile edges or viscose parts. The price range is from 210 rubles to 700. I prefer glue from Prym, called Fray Check and it costs 560 rubles.
  7. PanPastel for tinting, they are not cheap and the range is very wide, I would advise you to take 3-4 basic colors and use them
