Sue Linda Cloth Bunny
Sue Linda is a 50cm (20 inches) cloth bunny wearing a dress and knickers. Ideal to make using calico, this is an easy pattern but packed with charm and possibilities to accessorise to make her a truly individual creation. If you like making rag dolls for play or decoration, this pattern is a must to add to your collection.
This is a Sue Linda Cloth Bunny printed pattern. A printed teddy bear pattern is a great choice because you will receive the full-size pattern templates ready to cut out and printed instructions that you can refer to on your worktable as you sew. Once you have paid for your order, we will ship the pattern sheets and instructions to your delivery address.

Hand Sewing or Sewing Machine?
We prefer to sew our bears entirely by hand. You can save time by sewing the seams using a sewing machine. However, you will still need to do some hand-finishing.
