This little guy was done up in a great color of brown from Lionbrand’s Wool Ease in cocoa. Giving the bear a mock sweater done in a hushed pink gave the little guy a sophisticated hint of confection, like a chocolate covered cherry. Then I started thinking, the trimming of grey would give a nod to European fashion in the 50’s. The Dior Days of the Catwalk. Paris. Audrey Hepburn’s Teddy Bear. Yeah. Why not? I could see Holly Golightly as a young thing clutching this fashionable teddy bear. His pouting face claiming, “Someone told me I’m beautiful….and I think I believe it.”
I like this little guy. He’s a touch more refined than me, that’s for sure. A little bear a little girl can take to Tiffany’s to dream over diamonds….
