Franklin

Franklin is ready for the picnic today.

He even has his little honey pot to bring along and his favourite bear quilt.

Franklin has appliqued paw pads on his feet, the hand pads are on the bottom of the arm rather than the side.

The design is Tapper by John Renpenning, he is about 10" tall sitting. He does not stand as his belly is quite round and his head tilts forward.

The little honey pot is a Cherished Teddies original.

I know you can't see the bears on the quilt very well because he is hiding them but I made this quilt in 2006 using the Bobby bears pattern from Angels in Disguise, if you want another look at it you will find it here. (click on the pic for a closer view)
Let's see who else is out picnicking today.
Thanks Melody for letting us play.

Franklin is delightful. Love his colour, too. And what a gorgeous little honey pot! I have just recently bought the same pattern for the quilt. Seeing yours has been wonderful and gives me inspiration.

I'm so glad Franklin has come on the picnic today. He is very handsome. I think he'll have to hide that honey pot from the other greedy teddies.

Hello Franklin. He looks quite serious Mistea. Like he's plotting picnic domination or something .

Love his feet!

I hope you had fun at the picnic Franklin...are you guarding your honey pot from the other picnickers? is that why you look so serious?
