Ronnie the Hobo Bear

Very proud to introduce Ronnie the Hobo Bear. The idea for this bear sprouted from a conversation about my Hubby's friend Ronnie. No Ronnie isn't a hobo, so I don't remember why it came up but I thought it would make the cutest bear. And he is just as a pictured him. He is made from shaved gray fur felt (which took forever haha), coffee stained cotton fabric for his hat, tie, patches and bag. There is cinnamon and brown paint all over him for the "grungy" look. Credit for the bear pattern to Sweet Meadows Farm. Also credit to my Husband, Cliff, for teaching me how to tie a certain kind of knot that will come undone as a try to double it. :)
