  • Need a "Classic" Pooh Pattern

    I just became a grandfather and my son and his wife have decorated the granddaughter's room in "Classic Winnie the Pooh". This is not the Winnie the Pooh we are used to seeing from TV, coloring books, etc. but a more antique looking version from the original A.A. Milne books. Naturally, I'm having a rough time finding anything close to a pattern. Can anyone help steer me in the right direction?

    Hi Jack

    I've looked for Pooh patterns before myself but haven't been successful yet .

    I know that Walt Disney protects the copyright of its cartoon version quite ferociously. There was also a dispute over the copyright ownership of the original drawings which is explained here. This could be why there do not seem to be any patterns available.

    If you fancy using the original drawings to produce your own patterns, you might like to type Milne and Pooh into Google, then look at the images link .

      Gill,

      Thanks for the info. I've tried doing a Google image search and that just may be the only way to come up with a pattern, or scan an image. Not having ever created my own patterns, I've been trying to locate some that won't require me to learn another step in the process. With a "more than full time" job and all the normal household chores, my scrolling time is limited. But, if necessary, mowing the lawn and painting the windows, etc. may have to wait. Grandkids come first.

        Pooh Patterns

        The easy way would be to get a coloring book for kids.

            Thanks, Carl. There are plenty there to choose from. Now I just need to figure out how to convert them to a pattern to be used in a backlit night light that is from an old Woodsmith Magazine pattern. Any suggestions?

              You might cut out a piece in the shape of the hunny pot and cut pooh into that
              I have also seen some fretwork glued directly to the neon, plugin night lights.
              If you are worried about heat, you could use a battery powered night light and an ac adapter.

              As for converting the pictures. I would have to see which style you were looking at. There are some pretty intricate cuts on some of those.
              You can drop me an email if you like and we can go into it deeper there.

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
