Our expedition has discovered two new species of bears!

They both eat fruits and are completely harmless.

Golden bear (Ursus aureus) is clumsy in additon; it's friendly, as you can guess by the scraf, appropriate as a pet. It has rough golden fur with sparkling spots.

On the other hand, purple bear (Ursus purpureus) is very shy, hard to catch or even take a photo of. However, if you manage to catch a cub, it will grow up into very grateful pet. And it has soft fur and is really harmless, so it's perfect pet for children!

And now seriously. It was my father's idea. One day he was inspired by the way biological names are built and made up a whole list of unknown species of bears:
  • Scarlat bear
  • Purple bear (when I think about it, it seems to be the same as the previous...)
  • Golden bear
  • Royal/kingly bear
  • Imperial bear
  • Grassgreen bear

It all seemed to be just fun, until my sister came back from US with a grassgreen "TY" bear she got from a friend. It started to be more real.

About a year after that I discovered that I have almost golden fabric at home, I found a book about sewing teddys in library and made Ursus aureus for my father for Christmas.
I wasn't satisfied with him. Probably during resizing the pattern from book, he became really clumsy. I felt I would be able to make better pattern myself.

So when this challenge appeared and when I realised, that I have perfect fabric for Ursus purpureus at home as well, I tried it. And it surprisingly worked.

As for the photo - I'm not able to take good photos from close... it's always just by chance. So sorry about the quality. Maybe I'll replace it later.
