Loafers With Polished Pennies

IMG_1687So, I was able to whip up this nice little bear with a sweater design using up the very last of the Berroco Alpaca in Brown and the Donegal Wool in tweed that was sent to me from Ireland by Heather Donnelly. In some ways, I think this little bear looks a little vintage and in some way reminds me of that little picture I’ve often seen in my mind of a little boy waiting by the train tracks, suitcase in hand, knee length shorts hit by knee high socks, and loafers with polished pennies. Big eyed he waits for the train, wondering what his adventures will be, terrified inside, but anxious to ride the locomotive for the first time, sitting on his suitcase so he can see out the window as the world whizzes by. And in that suitcase? A fresh change of clothes, his pajamas, and this teddy bear. Yeah…that’s what I see.

He’s a nice plush size, soft to the touch, measures 13″ from head to toe, is ONE OF A KIND, there will not be another one! He’s ready to ship with a signed card by me. If you’d like to adopt him, click here.

  1. He’s almost a Pooh Bear! What a sweet face he has! I’m sure he’ll make someone’s day and help with many a new and wonderful adventure. 🙂
