An introduction to making jointed animals

This rabbit can be machine or hand sewn. I’ve simplified the process of making a heritage style jointed animal so that Ernest is the perfect project for those just started out or the experienced toy maker looking for a simple project. He has wool felt ears, onyx eyes, jointed arms, is stuffed with excelsior, and has a wool felt pom pom tail- all made by you!
