Missy the Bear is 12 inches tall sitting to her ear-tips and 15 inches long from toes to head (30 cm x 38 cm). She is wearing a crocheted-on dress in wine red and bright white, finished at the bottom with a very ruffly hem. The straps for her top are crocheted separately but firmly attached. On her bodice she wears a flower crocheted separately in sparkly white yarn. Underneath are crocheted-in red pants. Missy wears a removable white satin ribbon, to tie around her head or neck as you like. The rest of Missy is crocheted in buff beige - but with off-white tail, muzzle and soles of her feet, and her facial features are woven in dark brown yarn. There is nothing loose on Missy to harm a child of any age, and since she's made of all acrylic yarn, she is cold-water washable (lingerie bag is best, gentle or hand-wash cycle) and air dried or fluff-dried in the dryer. Missy has a nice smile and is looking forward to lots of hugs from her new friend.
