Bear for Katie Jr.

Filed under: Knitting — maryparadox @ 1:25 pm

I finally finished my “Otto” the day before Katie’s baby shower. It was a bit fussy, and I think I overstuffed it, but overall I’m happy with the results. I had to modify the nose a little bit to get it looking like a bear instead of a weasel, but I luckily had a good color brown yarn in my stash.

Below is Nick holding the bear at the baby shower. I should have noted on the card that it was washable, thought I’m not 100% sure what will happen to the stuffing. I figure hand washing will work, and be necessary as it is white, but machine washing might move the stuffing into clumps.
