Meet Bjorn & Ursula...

Bjorn is Scandinavian for “bear.” He is having a confab with his little buddy, Ursula (Ursula is Scandinavian and Latin for “little female bear.”). Bjorn is wearing a coat and cap made from a vintage tea-dyed chenille bedspread. There are three wonderful, vintage collectible Bakelite buttons sewn to his coat. His trousers are made from tea-dyed vintage cotton in a great old print. Ursula is a new bear but has been “aged” a bit to better match Bjorn. She is wearing a “dress” made from a scrap of tattered old lace. Two small antique MOP buttons trim the front.

I like your Bjørn and Ursula very much!
The pieces with the stitches are also nice!
