What Happened to Simplicity Pattern #4993?

Simplicity Pattern #4993

Above: Teddy Bear Rag Quilt by Kelly Conway.

🤔 You may have arrived on this page when you followed a link hoping to purchase the out-of-print Simplicity pattern #4993 - often referred to as the "teddy bear" or "puppy" rag quilt pattern. You likely know that pattern #4993 has been unavailable from Simplicity for many years.

😞 In 2014, Simplicity granted us limited permission to reprint the pattern and offer it at a cost to cover our expenses. They now claim to have plans to reissue the pattern and they asked us to stop offering the product. We're sorry that you can no longer purchase the reprints from us. Meanwhile, you might enjoy reading our article Rag Quilts, Fluffy, Easy and Fun to Make!
