Here is a pattern that is free. Is this the type you were looking for or one that is more 3D shape.

I tried to keep my promise but came across something that got me to thinking !!! You could take a Gman pattern extend the arms and make a wood hanger for the holidays. I printed out a pattern and places a hanger on top and it works. I think the grand kids would like it .

Those ones from the coun try store are the shape I want since I want them to be sitting down, but they are primitive which doesn't go with my theme, the hansel and gretel beanie toys are what I want but they are way too small!

The Hansel and Gretel or 15 & 16 inches. What size are you looking for? I will keep looking.

Here is one alternative -- buy a costume and stuff it. You could stuff it with old cloths, etc
This site has a childs and an adult.

I ordered one for my front porch. I think the grandkids will like it. There are photos of the guy in it and a video. I will have to sew a zipper up the back , attach the head and sew some soles on the bottom to clse the legs. I can stuff it and after christmas remove and fold away. I am going to try the old cloths first maybe use some pillows.
