WIP - Dorothy Bear



Here is another current WIP, my "Wizard of Oz" Dorothy bear. Her dress still has to be completed, and I'm thinking of adding a basket (and depending on how crazy I am at the time, possible Toto too). I've also knitted and stuffed the bodies for the Wicked Witch and Scarecrow. They're on hold right now because I'm knitting up bears for others and desperately trying to de-stash. (I've got to say, I'm very proud of the puffed sleeves - I've never designed bear clothes before, and they turned out well!)

I love her! I want to make some bears, too.

Thanks :) The bears aren't too difficult to make, and bear patterns are too hard to find either. I find they're a good way to stash-reduce, as well as use up little ends of yarn that you can't make anything big with. Of course Dorothy here is special: I bought yarn just for her :)
