Starry starry night...

Now if you've read the title and you know any Don McLean songs you will now be singing the words "paint your palette blue and grey...."

Why have I got you singing that? Well, it's because this new bear below is called Vincent, as is the song, and anytime I  hear the name Vincent I start singing!

He's a very sweet bear, who I made for a very dear friend of mine, Adam, who is approaching his 40th birthday. I met Adam at art college 20 years ago and for as long as I have known him he has always had a paintbrush or pencil in his hand. So when I saw this watercolour palette print fabric on the Liberty website I knew it would be just perfect for the bear he'd asked me to make. I left the naming up to Adam, so Vincent he has become.

He even has little pencil buttons...


  1. He turned out perfectly, those pencil buttons are just too cute! Thx to you now I'm singing too ;) Catherine x

  2. This is adorable! Love that fabric!
