- Patterns are usually made of card board, hard enough to withstand wear and tear.
- An average-size soft animal toy would have a set of patterns consisting of 7 to 12 pattern pieces or templates.
- One can normally see markings, letters of the alphabet and instructions written on one side of each template.
- A 1/4 inch seam allowance is already included on each template.
