I wanted to sew a soft little black bear for a friend's new baby boy, but all I had was a stack of vintage brown wool. So this fellow is a nice soft little brown bear.
His face is embroidered in what I would call "crazy person satin stitch". His permanent incredulous expression seems to suggest he's always hearing:
"This is a stickup! Gimme all your graham crackers!"
He also has a scarlet scarf for situations that require more pizazz.
I love this little man! We were calling him Bosco around the house, but now he's looking more like a Walter to me. Maybe that's just the new Breaking Bad season talking somehow.
I think I'll just leave the naming to the mama and the little bebe.
