Newport, Rhode I...
8 1/2 fully jointed teddy bear made from an old cashmere wool coat. I washed the coat-yes, with soap and water, to get a weathered look. He is jointed with hardboard discs and cotter pins including his head. Paw pads are felt & stuffed with polyfil.
The boat is home made & sail is shirt fabric.
I need to dress him a bit-maybe a scarf or sailor collar & a little bell or key. Since this is a sewing site-guessed he should appear w/o the extras.
Not for small children, tiny parts for joints & eyes.
Old cashmere/wool coat-washed; felt; embroidery floss; plastic button eyes; hardboard discs; cotter pins; metal washers; shirt cotton; wood; acrylic paint
