After conducting a survey amongst Argy and Bargy, it was decided that Owen the Alien was really either a teddy or a gingerbread man. A couple of ears and a cross-looking mouth later, it turns out that he is indeed meant to be a bear.

Under sufferance, Owen is modelling trim from Meet Me At Mikes. I thought he needed a little colourful something. He says its too girly; that he would prefer a bow tie. Though if push comes to shove, he has grudgingly said that he would wear this particular trim on lederhosen. Apparently some bears do wear such things, though Owen doesn't strike me as being particularly Bavarian.

I think it will be easier to sew the bow tie.

Update: Owen went off to join the other Softies For Mirabel at Mikes this afternoon, looking like this.
