Beautiful Old Bears, Knitting and Christmas

I have been trying to stock up ready for Christmas. 
Topped the Steiff section up with these 4 pretty cats.  The Whiskas Persian is available on my Weebly site www.pollysvintagebears.weebly.com and the other 3 are in my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/pollysvintagebears

 I am knitting atm, making a childs jumper with a teddy bear on the front.  This is an experiment for my Etsy shop.  I enjoy knitting as well as sewing so it will give me a larger variety of listings if there is a market for them.   I will stay with the teddy bear theme on any knitted garments that I produce so that they fit in with the other items in my shop.

I can't wait to get the jumper fisnished to see what it looks like.

Note,added 8th September - I don't think I will be able to sell this jumper as it is not my own design.
It is from a lovely book by Mo Smith called Teddy Bear Knits so if you want one you will have to buy the book and knit your own, sorry.  Just as well that I have a Grandaughter that this one will fit.
