  16. Hi how did the pattern work. I’s the measurements all from the top of the pages?
    And how do I fold page 33 and 34 when it’s the same page.
    Thank you

    • Did you take a look at the F.A.Q. at the end of the post ? There you have the link to the instructions.
      It’s true, you can’t fold pages, that’s why I am always talking about sheet ;-)

  17. Hi I would love the teddy pdf please. I’ve just been invited to a 1st birthday and her mum would love it if I could give this ago.
    Is there a way of creating the patterns with out using PS and a basic software program?
    Thank you for your lovely site.

    • As I said in my tuto, you can use squared or graph paper, following the same steps.
      It will take more time, as you should use a real pencil and eraser ;-)

  18. Please could I have a copy of the teddy patten, I collect bears and it would lovely on the shelf next to them many thanks
