A "Beary" Good Day

Today I finished up this lil guy - something about old bears or bears that "look" old, just bring out the child in me.

He's made from faux fur, which I've distressed. I used sawdust and wood excelsior to stuff him lightly, so he would flop forward, like one that has been around for decades.

His paw pads are made from vintage white wool, which have also been stained with a coffee and cinnamon mixture.

Two vintage black buttons were sunken into his head for his eyes.

He is fully jointed.

He wears a simple patriotic flag print scarf tied into a bow around his neck.
