The Mother Bear Project - My New Bear

I am so excited about my new bear that I just finished for The Mother Bear Project.

I used a new varigated yarn for the bear and created a new outfit for him with a white collar and bow tie instead of the scarf. I think the new design may withstand more hugs over the years and not fray on the ends.

I like the expression this one has too.

Emmitt was a good sport this morning letting me take more pictures of him with the new bear. I think by the look on his face, it is time for me to make one for him.

What do you think? :)

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!

Emmitt's life won't be khomplete until he gets his own bear!

Happy New Year's Eve!

The new design is great. I agree, though the scarf was wonderful, the bow tie won't fray. Emmitt sure is a good sport.

Yes you need to make one for him-- look at his poor little pugface! I think I see a pug pout there!

That's a good bear. Happy new year to you too. Also, can't remember if I told you this or not, but I'm getting one of your pug watches, it's a Christmas gift from my parents hopefully I'll be ordering in the next week or so.
