When I was in grade school about (18 years ago) my family studies teacher had us order stuffed animals to sew for class.  The animals had the pattern printed right on the back of the fur.  You would just cut it out and sew it together.  I cannot remember what the name of the company was or how to find it if it still exists.  The kit came with plastic eyes and other stuff you needed to complete your project.

Does anyone know what I am talking about?

I loved those things. I'm still kicking myself for not keeping the company name.

I made something like that as a kid too! Although it wasn't fun fur, it was the pieces just printed on cotton, but I remember how exciting it was going to the craft store to look for new ones. I really loved making the toys and the lady at the craft store where we bought the kits from was very surprised to lear that it was me (I was about 12 or so at the time) who made them and not my mum (who actually can't really sew at all).

I'd be interested in hearing more about the fun fur kits too. Smiley
