I have shown my "Paddington Bear" (affectionally known as "Paddy"
) a few times, but a good friend of mine sent me a Mini Paddington in a tin for Christmas, and this thread seemed perfect for them
"Big Paddington" must be heading for 20 years old now, he was hand made for my nieces. He used to have a blue duffle too. When my nieces outgrew him, I "Inherited" him and Mum knitted him his hat, coat, boots and even a suit case
