I made this bear for Jude for Christmas. This was one of those projects where nothing works out as planned. Everything I did to this bear I did at least twice, sometimes many more times than that. I wanted to give up on it several times but now he seems just right. Because he has been through so much already he has the feel of a bear who's been loved for a long time. Jude seems to like him a lot because they have both been ending up in bed with me lately.
