I went back and reworked the pattern and this is what I came up with. It's not like I hated the older version, but I think the bears have better proportions and look a lot cuter now.
My raccoon pattern now comes in a handy kit with everything you need to make your own adorable little trash panda with moving arms and legs.
A few years back I wrote patterns for larger Christmas elves, but they are quite detailed and take a bit of time to make. And since I know December is the busiest time for all crafters, I thought I would also make a little elf doll that is smaller and simpler - perfect as a last minute present or if you need to work up a whole bunch.
I haven't written any holiday patterns in a couple of years, but this year I have a brand new Christmas pattern to share with you - this cute little reindeer with an elf hat and a scarf.
I know, I know, it's not even November yet. But I am having a Christmas sale in my toy store a bit earlier this year.
