Here's Raleigh.


Raleigh is sitting on a napping Millie. And he's rather good friends with her too.


Raleigh's the third bear I completed and in order to prevent this blog from an onslaught of bears, I decided to space this entry out. Didn't work much did it?


I really like his old-fashioned look. He also has this particularly forlorn face that I adore. In fact I think he's the most traditional looking bear I have made to date. I actually imagined him sitting by the window when it's pouring outside so I had to take this photo (although it wasn't pouring but anyways....)


How can you resist that face?? I think he embodies the reason why I like sad bears too... He is awfully nice and sweet really but he's just sad about having to grow up.

Date of Birth: 20 February 2009
Height: 9 Inches
Original Patter: Tash by Jumbuck Bears

NOTE: I know the introduction to the pattern via the link says that Tash is a loosely stuffed bear. My stuff-happy bear-making self decided to stuff him otherwise. He still is cute though. hehe

Here's a group photo with Gordon and Timothy.

Raleigh, Gordon and Timothy

Oh my! You're getting your own bear family. I wonder if they go on picnics and stuff.

~if you got out to the woods today, you better go in disguise ;)

I love that song =)

I feel Raleigh looks fine well stuffed. Nice! I imagine he'll look floppy otherwise.
