"Can you make a bear wearing a kilt?"

A few months ago my sister called with a request, she asked "can you make a a bear" this was a commission for a dear friend of hers who needed a pick me up. Turns out this friend was a big fan of the books and TV series "Outlander" Sis thought that a bear in a kilt depicting the character Jamie Fraser would be just the thing so Jamie Frasbear was born. It had been a long time since I had made a teddy bear and I feared my skills were a bit rusty, I found the right fur at a local craft/sewing shop and the right plad to go with him. Some have said he looks a bit like Chewbaca from Starwars but I think he is cute and cuddly. I hear that he is enjoying his new home and that my friends is why I sew It feels good to see or hear about someone enjoying your work.
