Teddy Bears Picnic

Today, someone special is coming to the picnic. He is my Merrythought Bear. Even though this is an English bear, I bought him at little market in Stuttgart, Germany 10 years ago.
He is very splendidly dressed in his uniform and his name on the tag is The Sea Captain.
Besides his cute face and his wonderful outfit, he still has all his tags, sealed and attached to him.
On this side it says that he was made from their original 1930's pattern.
His head and paws are mohair and his uniform is made from felt.

I hope he's not too overdressed for the picnic!
I am off to see who else is coming to Melodys Teddy Bears Picnic today.....
Have a great day,
Teresa xx

Hi Teresa. The Sea Captain is a wonderful market find. He does look very dapper in his uniform. It is great to see bears from other countries and how they are presented. Enjoy the picnic.

I think that your Sea Captain might require a napkin for the picnic...none of these paper serviettes! Lol! He does look very grand!
You would love the Teddy Bear craft store we have in town here Teresa, lots of beautifully dressed teddies!
