Newport, Rhode I...
Sifting through my past to prepare for some serious spring sewing. I located these guys-some nothing like vintage editions I evolved toward, but, kind of a pleasant memory.
Later models used mohair & leather-still seems like character not necessarily dependent on fabric…kind of how I’d like to be judged. However, they were fully jointed in traditional manner.
I dressed them in patterns I used for the children’s clothes I made & sold. I called these Banana Boat Bears or Boat House Bears. Funny thing, I did not live anywhere near the ocean then, but, I do now!
Wishful thinking or just selection based upon stable employment!
Imitation mohair, imitation leather, cotton, corduroy, polyester filling, hard board joints, screws & nuts or cotter pins, plastic buttons, accessories
