|THE REAL BAGPUSS in the Rupert Bear Museum UK|
I have ALWAYS loved Bagpuss, maybe thats why I love cats and old things so much. Just before christmas when it was really REALLY cold, Mr M bought me a (now forgive me this sounds slightly rude :0) a Bagpuss warmer...(Titter titter)
Anyway...its basically a slightly smaller than the real thing Bagpuss plush with lavender weighted beans inside that you microwave instead of a hotwater bottle. Now of all the Bagpuss toys and bits and bobs you can get, this one looked the best, as I think most mass produced toys look well rather naff.
But I never really fell in love with him...even Silkie sniffed him and turned her nose up..hes just been sat under my dressing table out of view....
THEN I had a brain wave...hes just needs a bit of well tinkering with...his fur needs roughing up and he needs glass eyes and a glass nose, and whiskers...!
So I have done a bit of shopping on the tinternet...and thanks to one of my favourite bearmaking supplies I have ordered a few things to make Bagpuss - look more like the real bagpuss...!!
So I will keep you posted..hope it works..
