Here he is!
I am very happy with the way he turned out. He's a very 'proper' looking traditional bear - don't you think?
I love that mohair, it's just a same it was second hand on eBay so I have no way of reliably getting any more although there may be a small, rather hairy bear left in the remnants (or maybe a Panda!)
The best waxed nose I have done too, although it's not perfect, but that's how you know it's handmade - right?
I'm going to write a note for inside the box as well explaining what he is made of etc.
I am off to visit Baby Alice later so he can go meet her then. Hopefully it is something that she will treasure always. I know I have a soft toy made for me by my Godmother who is still with me (and in a very sorry state I have to say as he has always slept in my bed up til last year, and I'm 28 now)
Hope you enjoy looking at him - it's nice to made a more 'traditional' bear sometimes.
Love to all,
