This is Bertie.
He is made with 100% Cotton yarn, and carefully stuffed with polyester fiberfill to make him cuddly and hug-able.
Bertie is pretty much child-safe, as most of my toys are, meaning he has no buttons or small pieces that could come off and be a choking hazard. If you wish to be extra cautious, the ribbon is removable.
He sports an aqua blue ribbon which complements his rich chocolate-y color well.
This is one bear that I have to say I am rather happy with. Other teddies that I’ve made have turned out with funny faces because the gusset wasn’t sewn in quite right…. I think I may have gotten better. 🙂
Nose and eyes are embroidered in black yarn, with a speck of white in each eye to add some realistic effect.
