Grin and "bear" it

Okay okay I couldn't resist! My daughter wanted me to create a bear pattern for her. I searched through all of my patterns and couldn't come up with anything close to what she had in mind, so I had her draw up the initial bear shape she wanted and I did the rest. This is the second version, the first prototype was disassembled for pattern modifications. I used wool in this version, the ears and tail were glued on. The eyes are French knots and the nose is a satin stitch.

The bear is only about 3 inches by 4 inches. Hope you like it!
