I had quite a few of you email me looking for the pattern for the “bunny jacket” I made for the Notched-Collar lesson.
Unfortunately, I had just made the jacket as I went along, using the pictures from The Book as a guide as to what I needed pieces to look like. It worked out that it fit my son’s toy, but I didn’t have a real pattern for it. I started making a larger, better constructed jacket for my five year old as my notched-collar assignment, but decided that I’d rather do a lined jacket if I was going to spend the time making one for an actual human to wear. Lucky for me, lined jackets are covered later in The Book and I can totally use it as my lesson/assignment when I get there. But that left me needing a notched-collar assignment this week, and some of you still wanting a toy jacket pattern.
So how about we remedy that right about now?
Click on the above button and you’ll be able to download the full Bunny Jacket pattern and instructions via PDF.
The pattern fits all three of the Build-A-Bear stuffed toys my boys own, which are about 18 inches tall. So I would think it would work for any similarly-sized toy in need of a jacket.
-I’m not a professional and the pattern reflects that. But it’s free, so that’s what you get. It’s the pattern and construction process I used and should get you the same look, assuming that’s what you’re going for. Or it can be used to help draft out your own ideas. Or you could use it to line a bird cage. I’m good with whatever.
-When printing the pattern, make sure to unclick the “auto-center” options, etc. I’ve included a one inch square marking for the first page of each constructed pattern piece for you to compare, to make sure it’s printing at the needed size.
