I have a teddy bear making supply stash. Here is mohair to make 4 bears and also disks for joints for those bears.
I bought this mohair about 13 years ago and every time I see it I think about making bears and then I move on to something else. I like making teddy bears, it's fun. These mohair fat quarters are just enough material to make this bear:
Thinking about bears got me to thinking about rag dolls. I was looking at rag doll patterns on etsy the other day and I found a couple of indie patterns that I liked, but then I found this McCalls pattern that I loved because it includes a doll, a cat, a bear, a bunny, Uncle Sam, and clothes to cover them. This is perfect for me. I also found a cool YouTube video series that shows how to sew a rag doll, paint the face and make the hair from yarn. I probably won't be painting the face, but I will try my hand at embroidering the face. Rag dolls will be fun.
