Oliver's almost done! My seaming is much better this time around, especially my ladder stitch. It is much harder to determine where I sewed up the various parts after seaming. I had yarn issues, but will go into them later.
Oliver needing only his vest buttons in order to be complete:
Specifics on George:
Size 10 needles (10.5 for the jacket); Yarns used: Lionbrand Homespun in Rococo (body), Lionbrand Homespun in Cobalt (jacket), old generic off white yarn (seaming), Caron Simply Soft Brights in Berry Blue (seaming), Lion Brand Microspun in Ebony (embroidery), Red Heart Super Saver in Black (nose); Eyes are 12mm animal eyes.
The hardest part of this bear was his nose, but also the random gauge issues also gave me problems. The nose is a slightly better size than George's.
Here are George and Oliver together for a size comparison. While George can actually stand unassisted, Oliver cannot (Oliver's legs are a bit floppy. Oops. His legs are also tiny compared to his body, but that is how the pattern is written.).
