This one is Pierre. Kind of a dapper little fella. I used an altered version of a pattern I created about a year ago. The alterations include longer arms, shorter legs and more of a pot tummy. I like the way it turned out.
Pierre has a bit of smugness to his personality and although smugness isn't really encouraged in the teddy bear house, we do honor all personalities. I have posted him on eBay, so we'll see if his smugness can survive that arena.
And this little sweetheart is Dotty. Originally she was named Crumpet and she was supposed to be wearing a dress. However, she was quite insistent that she be called Dotty and wanted nothing whatsoever to do with the dress. Also during her photo session, I was convinced I would need a special prop, however, much to my surprise, she stood and posed just like a pro. Perhaps since I listened to and honored her requests, she listened to and honored mine. That's what happens when you listen to teddy talk (reminds me of some people I know)!
And this is the dress "Dotty" refused to wear. And after all that work I put into making it. Oh well, I'm sure another little bear will be absolutely delighted to wear this dress... I'm dreaming about her already.
Thanks to all of you for dropping by. Many hugs from Vicki
