This is what I call my Christmas bear, he is appliqued onto the front of a size Adult Large Red Sweatshirt and no I did not cut the front of a stuffed bear off and sew it on. Each piece of fake fur is hand cut and machine appliqued onto each other and then sewn onto the sweatshirt. The nose is stuffed with quilt batting and sewn onto face which is then padded with quilt batting and applied to shirt, the ears are floppy, ribbon is tied into a bow and can be retied as needed, jingle bells are sewn onto ribbon by hand. Each bear is built individually and has his own distinct features, which makes him one of a kind, as no two are exactly alike. I include wash instructions, as they are guaranteed wearable many times again and again if washed as directed. You will get tons of compliments when you wear this piece.
