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 :)
