    Hi All! This mohair/alpaca chipmunk pattern is intended to be a collectible for adults. It also is an advance pattern for the experienced Bear Maker or Sewer. This chipmunk is my second movement pattern for sale! My movement animals have 6 joints, an independent neck, armature and are designed to pose in many ways including standing upright, standing on four legs, laying, etc. Besides being adorable, this chipmunk is very versatile! To make things even simpler, the ears are sewn into pre-marked slashes and eyes are marked by eyeholes. Most of the finessing occurs with the needle sculpting, hand coloring and scissor trimming of the head. This original 8 page pattern for 5 1/2” (14 cm) Chippie Chennuga is designed to fit horizontally on 8.5” x 11” paper. Once printed, pages can be folded in half to fit into a zip lock bag for storage. This is an extremely thorough pattern including 5 pages of directions with excellent illustrations. You will also find Mary’s Secret Garden techniques for creating eyelids, whiskers, unique eye insertion, needle sculpting, hand coloration techniques, and assembling an independent neck. The pattern includes a complete list of materials needed. It also includes a montage of photos for reference. There is one page of clearly marked pattern pieces with detailed instructions for cutting, sewing and assembling your chipmunk. The pattern pieces include seam letters for easy match up, dots for cotter pin or bolt insertion, openings for turning, seam allowance, nap arrows, notches for eye placement and more. This pattern also is easy to resize because I include the stitch line and disc outlines so as you shrink or enlarge the pattern and still see where to stitch and what size discs to use. By purchasing this pattern you agree to not sell this pattern. You may sell a Chipmunk made from this pattern or a revised version as long as you mention it was made by Mary Wimberley of Mary’s Secret Garden. I have put many years of experience and many hours into the pattern so giving me credit helps me enormously. In fact share on Facebook if you if you feel so moved. ☺ Enjoy! Thanks so much for your support! Friend me as Mary Jardin Wimberley in Delaware on Facebook to follow my progress on the next pattern. Let me know if there are other animal patterns you would be interested in purchasing.
