I have swapped a day at work so have today off and will be working all day tomorrow instead so I thought I do a quick post.
Meet Walter Bear 🧸
I came across this free pattern on Ravelry some time ago and I got all but one arm and his ears made up, his eyes were in and the stuffing of the finished body parts was done, then it got put in a bag and I forgot all about it. I have no idea why I abandoned it when it was so close to being finished, more than likely something else grabbed my attention.
Every so often Oliver would ask me if I's finished it so a few days before we went to London I dug it out and over two evening I finished it off.
The hardest thing about this little bear was the nose, I think I stitched it on about three times before I thought I looked ok,
I think I pulled a little too much when shaping his face, you can see on the photo that it look pulled, but in real life it doesn't look that bad, must be the angle of the photo.
I thought he looked a little naked so knitted him a cardigan too, I couldn't find a free pattern for a little jumper, if anyone know of one please let me know.
I put Walter in a gift bag and gave him to Oliver when we were on the train, he loved him and said that he loved his nose, lol the one thing I struggled with!
Forgot to say, the pattern is by Janine Holmes on Ravelry, and I used Drops cotton, in case you are interested :-)
See you soon
