Steamboat Billy Bear

Our first felted bear is now up on our Etsy shop! He certainly won't be the last...

Looking as if he's stepped out of an old-timey black-and-white cartoon of yesteryear, Steamboat Billy is looking to bring some nostalgic hollywood magic to your home!

He is a one-of-a-kind hand-knit bear made with a combination of wool and acrylic yarn. His head, body, arms and legs are felted wool, which gives him a unique, smoother look than a traditionally knit bear. His eyes and nose are vintage recycled buttons. A bit of translucent black ribbon adorns his neck, tied in a playful bow. He was knit with as much love as I could possibly put into him.

He stands: 17 inches tall.
He's sized: One size fits all hugs.

If he ends up out playing in the mud in your backyard and needs a bath, he can be cleaned carefully with a damp cloth.

Because of his button eyes and nose, we don't recommend him for children under 5 years of age.

If you feel compelled to take him home, please click the post title to visit him on Etsy.

He looks like he's wearing lovely fluffy boots!

He's so cute! The felted bears just kill my fingers when I'm trying to get them assembled. But still - they have quite the look to them!
