A Special Outfit for a Special Bear

Hello Friends!  Today I have something a bit different to share with you.  My son wanted a little camouflage outfit for his teddy.  He picked out some yarn that he liked and so I thought...for a long time how I would go about doing this.  It's not perfect, but for the most part it fits well.  He now has an outfit of a hat, a coat and mittens on a string.  So he won't get cold this winter....well....I am thinking of making him pants.  What do you think?

Here's a back shot.

He's a well loved bear and my daughter sewed a button nose on for him after the original one wore off.

I sewed on a couple buttons on with brown thread to keep the jacket front together.

Then to keep the mittens from falling of or just plain getting lost....I sewed a string on to them.

It was a fun project, and I have an outfit to make for my other son's stuffy.  That will take a bit more thinking since it's considerably smaller.  So that will be forthcoming. :)  

Well, I've had some here're the Teddy with some pants. :)

Praying you all have a beautiful day!

Hello Dear Friend!
This is so cute, and yes the pants made the Little Bear look like he was ready to play in the Big Woods or go hunting. I bet he was so glad that you worked on making his little bear fully clothed.
These are the little things the children will remember. Well, at least the little bear will not lose his mittens.
I do hope you are doing well, yesterday I baked and made pumpkin bread!
Wish you were closer so I could of given you a loaf.
Hugs, Roxy

Your little bear is adorable in his new outfit! I love the mittens with the string!
As soon as the snow falls my fingers start itching to crochet and knit! Our snow has fallen, so I've started some new projects! :o)
