Very easy Pattern:
I've simplified the pattern to make it
with 1 major part only + the arms = 2 parts
Front side sewed inside out + Arms
Be careful not to sew the head to be able to stuff with padding.
Then you'll sew the right way out by hand to close the head.
Gathered Neck and Wrists.
Wool sewed to make the Hair + Pants Leg Cut.
