* Star * Spangled * Bear * Primitive Teddy Bear

..*..Star * Spangled * Bear..*..

Ready to celebrate Independence Day, in all his Patriotic Glory

This Primitive Americana Teddy would be a perfect addition to your Independence Day decor or add to your year round Americana goodes.

Star * Spangled * Bear is one of my handmade prim teddies.  He has an Olde & Worn ...... Dirty & Grubby look about him.  Mis-matched button eyes, make-do patches and mends all add to the primitive look of this boy bear.

(look at his pudgy little belly ;)

I handstitched wool stars about his body, hence the Star Spangled Bear name.  His arms and legs are sewn in a fixed position so he is not poseable.  In his paw, he holds a Dried Blue Thistle, my take on a Sparkler for him, after all he's celebrating!

Star * Spangled * Bear is about 10" tall.

Star * Spangled * Bear is $old plus Travel Fare, he will arrive signed and dated by me, his maker.
