NOTE: This Kit is for the CHOCOLATE teddy ~ (see mohair color photo)
~ This dear teddy was inspired by an early teddy bear. He is about 10" tall, has glass eyes and is fully jointed. His style is perfect for a beginner as there are no paw pads to set in, yet he still has the look and charm of an olde ted. You will create Teddy from soft German mohair, embroider his nose with Perle cotton, add glass eyes and joint him to be posable.
~ There are multiple ways to create movable joints in teddy bears and I show more than one style when I'm teaching. However, my kits include cotter pin joints (even for arms and legs) because most people have a needle nose plier around to tighten them with, the other types of jointing hardware take more specialized tools.

* Hand dyed wool, mohair or velvet colors in kits will vary often as dye lots do change. Many fabrics I dye myself and some I purchase from others, this variance in dye lots is what makes these fun projects unique!
** As I'm a bit new to this . . . shipping overages in excess of one dollar will be refunded to you thru pay pal ;-)
*** International customers: I will bill you separately for excess shipping difference thru pay pal or refund overage thru pay pal.
