Pink Hearts and Chocolate

Happy Valentines Day! I always seem to be a bit late to the party when it comes to creating seasonally inspired Teddy Bears, but I think that my newest bear will be a welcome addition anytime of year. I hope you think so too.

Earlier this week, I went down to my studio with every intention of working on three big bears which I have in progress right now for the Bloomin Bears Online Show March 12th and 13th. Then my eyes happened to fall on a stack of pawpad fabrics (ultrasuede and wool felt) I had ordered which were waiting to be put away. The pink and brown pieces lying side by side caught my attention, and my ever distractable mind took a detour!

"OOOH, pretty... cherry cordial ice cream! yum!... pink hearts and chocolate--Valentine's Day! I must make a Valentine's Day Bear!" This speedy little train of thought took only a second to go through my head, and before I knew what I was doing, I was pushing aside my other projects, clearing the table for a big piece of pink alpaca fur!

So here is my scrumptious little Valentine-inspired cutie, Hugo.

He is available directly from me. Please click on the "available" tab above for more photos and information!
