A Finished Bear


Katie J. has finished her Stars and Stripes Bear from Teddy Bears by Debbie Bliss. He finished out at about 16 inches tall. She used Rowan Wool/Cotton for the bear's body and for the flag pattern on the sweater, and Rowan DK Tweed for the main part of the sweater. Here he is:

She probably will still re-do the seams on his feet. And she breathes a sigh of relief, because she had to give this guy to her mom for Christmas with no head and half of a sweater! Thankfully, her mom thought he was cute anyway. But now he can be sent on, fully complete. (Katie notes that due to the construction of this bear-and most in the Debbie Bliss book-he isn't a good candidate for a toddler to play with. She plans to knit a Bobbi Bear for her son in the near future.)

Happy New Year Katie J!
I like the way your bear came out.
Perfect!
I also like his little pillow and the chair he's sitting on. Very nice pose!

Katie J... your bear turned out adorable! I picked up this book from the library, and I am just going to HAVE to make the bear in the bunny suit for my brother's baby girl, who's due to show up towards the end of March. I may have to buy the book, too, as so many of them are just adorable.
