Pattern Description:

Meet Pippa! The Laughing Bear!
A delightful 16 inch fully jointed bear with an open mouth and inserted tongue.

Included are precise and detailed written directions, step by step through the entire bear making process: from pattern cutting to sewing to finishing. Pen sketches illustrate the more difficult aspects of constructing the mouth, the tongue insertion as well as simple pinning. Also included are my "tips" throughout the pattern which I have learned from sources as Rotraud Ilisch of Germany, Linda S. Mead of Spare Bear Parts, and from years of creating my own bear patterns.

My name is Ginger, and I began sketching and designing fashion styles when I was 5 years old, just like my mother and grandmother. Stick pins and lovely tan tissue paper were my favorite play items as a little brown haired girl, and still are today!

Some ladies dream of Prince Charming, but I dream of a dressmaker form on a stand.

From haute couture to pattern design, I truly love ...
