One completed teddy!

So my productivity has been fab over the past few days, I have designed a pattern and made a teddy, plus taken photos of every step to put it all together in a step by step kit to sell on my website.

The kit will include:
All materials (that you choose from a selection… Truly a bespoke bear!)
Safety eyes and nose
Toy stuffing
Needles
Pins
Threads
Pencil
Pattern (on trace so you can match up patterns and grains easily)
Arm, leg and head joints ( so it will be a full jointed and possible bear)
Photo tutorial step by step
Detailed instructions

They will be categorised in a difficulty rating as it is far easier and less time is needed to make a fabric bear. A fabric bear would take around 4 hours from start to finish, whereas a fur bear could take up to 10hours if you are hand stitching.

I intend to sell just the pattern too as both a PDF and paper pattern, so you can use what supplies you may already have.

This is where I need your comments and suggestions 🙂

Pricing … Is it realistic?

PDF pattern sent via email £3.50
Paper pattern sent by snail mail with free postage £5.50
Full kit £29.99 plus postage of £5 within the uk and £10 worldwide

Would you buy the kit? It is suitable for 11+ so it could make a lovely Christmas present for a budding creative!

Also any suggestions for improvements would be much appreciated!
