Linus and his overalls


 After making Otto and using up all those scraps, it felt so good, that I decided to do another one. Plus I was waiting on some mohair for two other bears I was really feeling i needed to make to arrive. Plus I had started knitting some overalls, intended for Otto but when Otto came into being, it was clear he wasn't an overall guy, he was more a scarf sort of bloke.

Plus the name Linus had come to me at some random point and a within a few days, Linus was born.
It's funny to make a bear to fit a pair of overalls rather than the other way around, but this time this was the case.
His overalls are a bit big and baggy for him, but I think bear clothes should tend to be on the baggy side, except for vintage one piece Edwardian knitted swimsuits ( more on that at a later date)



And his overalls are removable for those times when he feels the need to be free and in the nuddy . As we all do.



 happy Weekend. and thank god it's Friday :)

I am a sucker for an animal in overalls...and a hand knitted pair! Why I do believe he's perfect! So, what sort of bear is Linus, what are his favorite things? For some reason I can see him stacking blocks and building sandcastles. Perhaps someday he will grow up to be an architect?

Happy weekend dear!

Always good to have the nudie option. I know a little boy called Linus... and this bear is as cute as him - which is high praise indeed.

Jess, your bears have the dearest personalities. They look like such lovely friends. I loved Otto's soft blue scarf and now seeing Linus and his blue overalls - they are just perfect.
