Darling 7" fully jointed vintage look teddy bear cuddles his tiny 4" kitten friend! This set is perfect as a gift for a child or a grown up too! We love them in the arms of an antique doll. The set is great grunged up a bit for a very primitive well loved look too!
A darling must have to add to your stash!

**********A Note to NEW doll makers and pattern collectors .OOP or OUT OF PRINT simply means the DESIGNER is NO LONGER printing an item ,IT DOES NOT MEAN the item may not still be in circulation! 1965 penny is OOP but we still see them in circulation, A magazine, or newspaper is printed just one day, or just one month, yet can still be easily found past the one day or one month printing date, the same can be said for out of print patterns or instruction books, please be aware that an item can be out of print-OOP without being out of circulation and may possibly be found elsewhere, an item described as OOP or HTF doesn't mean someone else doesn't still have stock of an item or that we hold the market and are offering the only one available in the whole world, please be understanding of that when bidding. If you are unsure you want to pay the price for something that is OOP or HTF, please don't bid. Thanks :)
Each year we get at least one *unhappy* new doll maker/pattern collector who is unaware that 99% of the doll patterns we sell are created by individuals, as such they are not created in the same manner as big name, buy in the store catalog patterns. Most are created on a copy machine in the home of the designer or by a small copy center used by the designer. As resellers, we don't have quality control or input about how they design or market them. You will find the patterns may arrive in envelopes, paper bags between sheets of colored paper, folded book style or flat and unfolded, often in a zippered plastic bag. They may contain pattern pieces on both sides of the paper, pieces that you need to tape together prior to cutting on fabric, pieces that need to be enlarged, or no pattern pieces at all, simply measurements within the pattern instructions. Photos vary from really great to not so great, you may find them printed directly on plain paper, printed on paper then adhered to the pattern cover in some manner, glossy or matt photographs, line drawings in black and white or in color, or as the actual front cover. CD Patterns are becoming popular as well and you may find those offered from time to time. Designers create new covers, re-release and make changes to patterns all the time as we have recently discovered! Some have even quit making pattern for many years only to turn up again later under a new name. We are happy to see if we can find something for you, We get a some really unusual patterns that turn up on Trade it Tuesdays. Please note we don't make copies of items you *HAVE MISSED* if you would like a pattern, please bid at the time the auction is listed. We buy at closeouts, yard sales, on ebay, at various auctions sites and auction warehouses as well as other outlets, please consider your pattern USED although it oft times may be new. We do not have any smoking members, however the previous owners may have smoked, we do have pets and children and husbands though if you are allergic to any of those, please take care when bidding, we don’t know what the pattern packets may have been exposed to.
*****As Much as we hate to say it, we don't tolerate rude behavior, Bidders will be blocked and transactions canceled before or AFTER sales if we feel rudeness has become an issue, please treat us as you'd like to be treated as a fellow human being.
