Description


Here's my bear...he came out very somber- rather dour actually so I decided to name him after Shackleton- one of the pioneers who explored the South Pole.  We studied him one year in history and my son became fascinated with his life story. Shortly thereafter they came out with an excellent movie about his life too.
 
 So, anyway,  it seemed fitting for my sober bear.  I think it was the plaid scarf that did it. 
 
This was fun.  I did wind up leaving the zipper off as time was running short- so it simply has an envelope back of the blue fabric which is pretty little thing by Deena Designs.

He does look like a very serious bear. It's so funny how even though everyone is using the same pattern each has their own personality. Envelope backs for pillows are great - nothing wrong with that!

True

LOL love how you came up with his name! And he is very serious and very cute! I love envelope backs

Laweigel

He is serious, but the South Pole is kinda cold snowflake and now he has a lovely scarf. He wants to know where the mittens might be.
Love how he turned out!!!!

Caribousmom

Aw...he is so adorable. Love his plaid scarf and the quilting adds a total different look!!

Suddenlysandra

He's cute - he doesn't look dour to me - he looks like he's waiting patiently for Mrs. Shackleton or the Kids Shackleton to call him for supper, lol!

Mymble

Conniharns Thanks so much!

Mymble

Suddenlysandra Thank you!- and yes, I suppose he does look a bit hungry but then all polar bears are hungry most of the time I imagine;))))
