My German Bear
So, in the beginning this bear was going to be a cowboy. I was making his shirt plaid, and then I was going to give him a bandana rather than a scarf, but by the time I was done with his outfit, something was just wrong. I really didn't like him. His head looked funny, his legs looked funny. He just looked funny all over. After I gave him his face, things didn't look any better. So, I decided to give him a hat. He needed something to make him special. So I whipped up this hat, added a pompom, and when I sewed it in place, somehow it just made me remember those german guys you see at Oktoberfest.
Maybe not exactly. But somehow it was close enough, that now I sort of like him. I think the hat makes him sort of cute.
