  • 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.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
