I think the idea is really cute. I wouldn't buy one as pictured because I personally don't like at all the fact that every place you hand stitched is VERY obvious. Around the ears, ears attached to the head, and the hole on the arm that you left open for stuffing.

But the price is really to low. You should be charging closer to 30, but before you do I'd work on those details. I can't see anyone paying that kind of money for a bear with the handstitching done that way.

It's like I told another craftster. Sure some people will love it and buy it exactly the way it is, but MORE people will love it and be willing to pay more if you create a more finished look.

I want to fill my home and life with handcrafts! PM me if you want to do a personal swap!

I have brand new inkpads and stamps I need to get rid of. Good brands too. I want to swap for other supplies! PM me if you're interested!

No I probably wouldn't but it for myself, maybe for someone else I knew that would appreciate him.  I think the stitching on the ears is cute but on the side no.  In terms of the price I think it's well priced considering you don't come across a kimono bear every day.

I think it's just too cute. Just work on the stitching around the arms, try going around the entire thing with a visible stitch in a bold colour, and it will look just perfect! And than charge more, as well!
