This is Alex. Originally, for some bizarre reason, she was a ‘Bruno’. At least, that’s what the box says. Her name change is a bit of a funny one really; as soon as I saw the box, I knew that she couldn’t be that masculine. Alex was the first gender-neutral name I came up with, as from the pictures on the box, I figured she could be a guy, just not one masculine enough to be called Bruno. She’s got a neck-tie with flowers on it, for one thing! Then I finished crocheting her, and last weekend I finally got around to sewing her up. And then I realized that she couldn’t ever be male, and so she is a female Alex! I hope that the woman who will be getting her as a Christmas present likes her, she has a lot of teddies so I’m sure Alex will fit right in!
Have another picture of her, just because I love her
She’s a bit lopsided, but I think she’s not bad at all, for my first attempt at a teddy bear! She also has a blue tail, but I didn’t think to take a photo of that, so you only get the front view.
She’s also my first attempt at crochet, which I have decided is absolutely wonderful. I’ve already started something else in crochet; I’m making a set of jug covers for my parents for Christmas, some of which will be crocheted, and others will be knitted. More on them later on, when I finish one!
