This is a great book. The Bears are whacky but that's what makes them special. Instructions are very detailed in writing and photos. Full size patterns too. Even my first Bear was a success. Love it.

About

Join us in the wondrous world of TheBigForest

In a sunny forest clearing stands a hut, TheBigForest hut. Benjamin, Maker in Chief and Michael, Head of Forestry Commissions spend their days designing wondrous handmade goods for grown up and kids.

Our limited edition art doll animals for grown-ups are amazing creations inspired by British characters and identity. Maybe you will meet Bill the old Mod bear with his trusty greyhound, porkpie hat and bundle of records (Motown and The Who of course!). Or retro astro bear with his space rocket? Or what about our seaside and forest dogs tableau - standing on reclaimed and restored pieces of the famous Brighton Pier in Sussex, England.

Look out for our construction greetings cards, felt brooches, celebration small animals, campervan cards, framed tableau in felt or paper construction..... but why are we explaining? Go see what we have made for you in our shop and check back regularly as there is sure to be something new!
