Strawberry Farms Bear

 I made this little guy using a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern and embellished him with an olde rag tag that I designed. It says " Grundy Co. Strawberry Farms", Since 1889, Pick your own".. and I added an image of a strawberry. He measures around 11" sitting, He was grubbied with walnut ink and left out to dry in the sun. I stitched the tag to his belly in a very primitive fashion. and added an old rusty bell around his neck. and wired a grubby strawberry to his hand.. that I made from my own pattern.   I gave him bead eyes, and a stitched nose.
He is available for purchase for 32.99 plus traveling fees.
The first picture shows his actual color, the others made him look a little brighter than he is.
