I made this guy from a pattern by Lisa Martin that I found in the book Softies.  Usually I monkey with patterns and colors a bit, but this guy was so cute I did my best to stick to the directions I had (except I did use fleece instead of felt--I wanted my bear to be cuddly).  My bear's head came out a bit narrower than the head of the bear in the book, but I actually think he looks cuter that way.  Here he is, enjoying a nice sit-down in my armchair.  Note his tramp pants:

I think I'm almost as proud of the fact that I sewed this guy on a portable Singer from 1951 as I am about how well he turned out; they just don't make machines like that anymore!
