What can I say about this laughing Panda? This open-mouth kit is so much fun to make. Chuckles has so much personality! You can choose to make Chuckles without the open-mouth if you like. The fabric is a medium pile silky fabric. Very nice. A lovely iridescent blue organdy ribbon is included for the ruff around the neck. Chuckles is 3 1/2" tall. As with all of the fabrics in my kits, this fabric will not fray when sewn. How cool is that?
Look at the second photo showing the contents of one of my complete miniature kits.
***Please note that since the kits have been continuously produced since 1983 there have been subtle fabric changes. Most of the fabrics are vintage and I have long since exhausted my stock of some of the original fabrics as seen in the photos. Most of the fabric changes are quite subtle and similar to the original fabrics. A few of the fabric changes are actually an improvement. Kits that have fabrics that are impossible to substitute have been discontinued. Every time I get the photos printed, the color is different and occasionally not true to the actual color of the fabrics. Just know that you are receiving a quality kit to make a lovely critter and I only supply fabrics that I use myself.***
All of my miniature kits have easy to follow instructions, a nice color photograph, a fine needle, embroidery floss, and bead eyes. Most of the kits have silk ribbon included. A few of the kits have black onyx bead eyes. Several kits have additional items necessary for completing that kit. In most cases, all you need is thread, tweezers, scissors, stuffing material, and some time set aside. All pattern pieces are printed on the fabric as well as in the instructions. This feature alone will get you started making your bear right away since you won’t have to hand trace the pattern onto the fabric. AWESOME!! Also….since the pattern is included in the instructions; you may use it to make additional bears!

Shipping & policies
Shipping went up again! This time is wasn't so extreme for the U.S. shipping, but the International shipping is quite substantial. However.......there is good news for you if you order several items. Shipping is actually lower for packages that weigh up to 8 ounces. Over 8 ounces the rate jumps again. If you are ordering kits, you can order several and still be in the 8 ounce rate. Basically....you will pay the same shipping price for one kit or 10 kits. If you add a heavier item like the fabric package you will add on a little more shipping, but if the shipping is actually less than you paid, I will refund the overage. Whew! That was a lot to say, but I try to be very clear about shipping charges.
Some countries import taxes and duties before they will deliver your package. THIS IS NOT IN MY CONTROL and I have no way of knowing if there will be a charge and/or for how much this might be. I am not responsible for these charges. AS AN INTERNATIONAL BUYER, THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. THANK YOU!!!
I am very quick at shipping. Orders are shipped the same day if received before noon. Otherwise, I will ship the following morning.
While I prefer PayPal, I understand some customers do not like to pay for purchases through the Internet. I also accept credit cards through Etsy check out. I do accept Money Orders. If you are not in the US, please make sure your money order is drawn on a US bank and made out in US dollars. Please mail your money orders promptly. I do appreciate you and want to send your items quickly.
