PDF Sewing Pattern: Ernest the Jointed Rabbit


I've been making mohair teddy bears for over 25 years and here's a chance to share some of that knowledge with you. This little bear can be machine or hand sewn. He’s a perfect project for someone who likes to work small and has the patience to do so. The pattern is simple and the detailed instructions- which can be modified to make it more or less complex, make this a good introduction to traditional bear making. The finished bear is about 6" tall.
