Jumper for Bertie my cuddly brown bear

My Creation

I recently saw this pattern on this website and I thought that my dear old friend and companion Bertie my Brown Bear required some new clothing. Bertie was bequeathed to me by my dear aunt who at the right old age of 88 left it to me. Bertie is obviously camera-shy (the truth be told he needs a good few repairs and a wash). Bertie has been in the family so I dont know if it would be appropriate to call it an heirloom! Any ideas fellow crafters?

I am excited that Bertie will get a new jumper and thanks for the ideas. This website is trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreffic!

Wonderful jumper, great wool. My bear is mid fifty-ish. My younger sister and I were both given a bear, when she was about two. Hers bit the dust years ago - my 'llittle' girls play with mine - it's certainly stood the test of time!
