|Caught plucking out his white feathers.|
And like most typical teenagers, he is in a hurry to grow up and be an adult. I watched him pluck quite a few of his white feathers out.

And to prove he was an adult, he did several regal poses just to impress his viewers.

Introducing Bear Lee an Angel
Bear Lee is not perfect as you can tell from his crooked halo and droopy wings tied on with twine,....
|I used high quality muslin of 200 count|
His heart is filled with his favorites: berries and flowers. A friend visiting Alaska told me about her experience of watching a black bear grazing on dandelion heads. It had me wondering how many dandelion heads does it take to fill a black bear?

|I used coffee to stain the muslin|
|Twine is used to keep Bear Lee's wings on his back and his halo upright|
|Batik backing on the wings for a nice finished look|
- Body ~ 16 inches long (doesn't include halo)
- Sitting ~ 12 inches tall (doesn't include halo)
- Wing span ~ 14 inches
- Heart ~ 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches
|Bear Lee's arms and legs have minimal movement.|
He can stand or sit.
So, what do you think? Would you pay $35 for him? Too much? Too little? I plan to post Bear Lee in Etsy soon. I need to work on his photos. They are not the best. My light box is too small for him. Maybe an outdoor photo shoot would be better.
Once Bear Lee has sold I plan to make another one. I think I'm going to try a different bear pattern. In the meantime, I'm also thinking of creating some more crazy quilt items. I had a lot of fun creating Bear Lee's wings and heart.
