Introducing Vinnie Bear

Confession: I am a 40+ year old, married woman who still sleeps with a teddy bear known as Vinnie Bear. Vinnie serves more as a body pillow of sorts but he has been with me since junior high. The history goes something like this: John Vinroe was an older high school boy who gave me this bear as a friendship gift so I named him Vinnie Bear. Vinnie used to have a velvet 3-piece suit but it has long since disintegrated over the years and he desperately needs some new threads.

Today, I received my first order of indigo cotton yarn, Den-M-Nit. You know, denim is my fave and now I'm searching for a nice baby cardigan pattern worthy for one special bear.
