gingerbread bears

My aunt made felt gingerbread men and suddenly had an inspiration.
Why not add ears and a snout. A bearish snout.
She confided that the idea had come from bears my mother made once upon a time. I thought there was a familiar something about that face. It took a few tries she admitted. The nose seemed to point too up or too down but at last she got it just right.
If you kind of squint, you can still see the remnant of gingerbread about the edges, but a clever Christmas bear, festive and vested made his debut for the holidays.
He has a sister too.
