(and they all have limbs!)
From left to right, they are:
- A is for Ava
- B is for Bo
- F is for Frankie
- O is for Oliver
- N is for Naomi
I modified the Jess Hutch pattern in a few teeny ways - the limbs are a little shorter, and I didn't do the increases for more hand/foot definition. Also - I gave everyone long sleeves. As if long sleeves are going to compensate for the fact that they are not wearing pants.**
I did some experimenting, too. Different ear placements, different arm placements... You can really see this if you look at the arms of F, O, and N!
I just wanted to try a few things and working in bulk really gave me the ability to compare and contrast.
Also, everyone has a very different expression (which doesn't really show in this photo) which I tried to match to the personality of the child. Oliver is very solemn and doesn't talk much. Naomi is so very outgoing and engaging...
I do hope that everyone will love their bear.
*and the picture quality is dubious. It's icky and rainy and the light is bad today.
Hopefully, I'll be able to get a better shot or two before I have to give them all away tomorrow...
I was just so pleased to have them done, and I wanted to share!
**I'm not sure what it is with me and the pantsless bears. I just like them this way... Besides - Pooh, Yogi, BooBoo - none of the greats wear pants....
