Special Order~ Aunt Peggy's Bears

When Aunt Peg saw my first bear, Cornelius, she asked me to make two bears for her grandsons for Christmas. Because the boys are very young, these teddies have no joints or buttons, or small parts that can be pulled off and swallowed...

The pod like shapes they are laying on are more bear parts knitted up and waiting to be stuffed and sewn together. And when they are ready they will sit on the shelves of The Paper Sparrow, waiting for children to take them home!
(or just some big kid like me! ;)

Awesome - I love the blue one. I know it;s almost silly, but my favorite part is that they have little scarves on! They're really neat. I may have to learn to do something like this - I always think they are so fun every time I see them on your blog.
