Otto- the using up bear

Otto -who could have been Moto, Toto or Michael Henry ( long story) is as i said above a using up bear.
He was made out of some remaining scraps of a mohair, a couple of eyes i ordered by accident and his scarf from the last of a ball.
It always makes me feel good using things up , getting as much as a i can from the last remaining bits of mohair, partly because it's so dear, and partly as I hate wasting things. ( Same with food) It always makes me feel very frugal and like I'm saving money, which is ridiculous as just because it wasn't bought this year, doesn't mean I didn't spend the money on it.



Otto by the way has a good sense of humour , likes table soccer, paw wrestling and anything to do with brownies, Funnily he reminds me a bit of Moby ( ?) even though he's a completely different sort of bear and completely different colours. I think perhaps its the slightly large upturned nose, that makes them both look as if they like to smell flowers and nature smells in the air.

Otto is very cute and if everything turned out just as adorable by using up scraps then I think there would be a lot less scraps!
