Fun Raccoon from Real Fur
Sharon Purdy sent us her raccoon coat to have us make a raccoon for her. I have a variety of soft animal patterns but had never made a raccoon before. Happily, Woman’s Day magazine published a book in the 1970s “Book of Soft Toys & Dolls” and it has a raccoon pattern. I did an adaptation of the pattern because I wanted a jointed raccoon that could sit on its own. I also added some black fox fur I had on hand for the “mask” on the face.
I’m pleased with the way this guy turned out.
