The Dodo pattern comes in two sizes large 22" long small 10" long
The dodo has been extinct since 1681. There are no photographs, of course, and few surviving drawings of what they actually looked like, and a couple mounted specimens. Some report ashen gray feathers and some off-white. Some say black feet and beak, some say yellow. All drawings show stubby wings, incapable of flight and tail feathers that curl up over the back. Some drawings show bird feet like a chicken and others show web-feet like a duck. I have found the most effective material to simulate feathers is a medium shag or tufted fur fabric. Vinyl makes a good beak and feet, but is more difficult to sew than felt.
Aardvark to Zebra 's vintage (1980's) stuffed animal patterns are more realistic than cutsy. All pattern pieces were hand-drawn and labeled, with complete instructions, illustrated with hand-drawn construction diagrams. Pattern pieces are full size, printed on one side of !!"x 17" paper, ready to be cut out. Arrows, notches, dots and seam-lines are clearly printed, all referenced in the instructions, so making these animals is easy. There are no construction photos, but a color photo of the finished animal(s) is on the cover, as well as a line- drawing showing seam lines. Many of the patterns have variations, some with more than one animal or the same animal in different sizes. They are a real joy to make and own.
