Charlotte the Bunny Toy Kit – Miadolla
Charlotte the Bunny toy kit is a gorgeous sewing kit from the fabulous, Russian Miadolla range and contains everything you need to make a cute, jointed teddy bunny rabbit who stands approximately 23cm tall. Charlotte is made from plush fabric, stuffed with traditional wood wool (and a little steel weighting) and has moveable arms, legs and head.
Miadolla say “Charlotte has an artistic nature and is an aspiring writer. She travels around the world, collecting exciting stories for her books. In her free time Charlotte loves tell her neighbour’s children tales and funny stories from her trips. She also loves to dream (with a cup of tea!) about her own house at the sea”.
The kit contains a pattern, materials and comprehensive instructions to guide you through the processes to make your bunny. The kit also includes the patterns, instructions and materials to make her clothes, shoes and bag too.
You can sew this bunny completely by hand (back stitch is the main stitch used) or on a sewing machine (there will be a little hand sewing needed). The kit is also supported by some great ‘How to do it’ videos on our website if you prefer more visual ways of learning.
Your kit includes all of the materials you need:-.
- sewing pattern
- detailed instruction with pictures
- plush fabric
- knitted fabric for bag
- faux leather
- cotter pin joints
- sewing threads
- stranded cotton threads
- beads (for the eyes)
- sewing needle
- wood wool (for the stuffing)
- steel weighting
Equipment you will need to make your bear:
- A pair of paper scissors
- A pair of embroidery scissors
- Round nosed pliers
- Glue (for the shoes)
- Tailor’s chalk or an air erasable pen (to mark around your pattern pieces)
To complete this project, the maker will need to be able:
. to hand sew or be able to use a sewing machine
. to feel confident working with small, ‘fiddly’ pieces!
*Because this kit contains bead eyes and steel weighting, it is not suitable as a toy.
