I used to make bears.....a lot of bears actually. Each hand sewn (read that as needle and thread not by a sewing machine), jointed and totally unique. That was a long time ago.But with Christmas coming I got the urge to see if I could still put one together. Endure all the flying tuffs of fur and the sore fingers. And because I stick out my tongue when I am sewing, I eat alot of fur. It is not pretty...... trust me. But here is the result! He is so soft and huggable!
