But on the lip side, he's stuffed with lavender. As I got this 1lb bag of lavender, I'm just trying to get rid of as much of it as possible. I know 1lb doesn't sound alot, but if you see how small lavender buds are, you'll understand why I'm trying to stuff everything with it. Aside from the fact that it smells good, I need to get rid of it. Haha.
Anyway, this is for my friend Maria who had left work to go to an one-year intensive program in Copenhagen, Denmark. She's from there originally, so it's almost like going home for her. Plus she's near family. On top of a hectic study schedule she also been thru alot of stuff, so I have a great deal of admiration for her and her strength to go thru with everything despite of all the things that were happening in her life.
Well, she came back this week to touch base, so we got to catch up. It was way fun for 2 hrs just talk and catch up. And I had tons of fun making this bear. I like these patterns where you don't have to attach too many parts to make something. While the only thing I don't have to attach was the head and the body, I still have to do the arms, ear, and the cap; I do enjoy these one-shot type patterns.
Speaking of patterns, I got it from Lion Brand. If you haven't heard, all of their patterns are now free. So take advantage all you want.
