Meet my first finished bear . . . definitely a boy bear!! He's a 12" bear made from cinnamon faux fur [which is so soft you can't help but stroke it]
I haven't named him because he now belongs to my daughter who has claimed him and who has ordered a hand knitted scarf for him too. I'm going to be busy!!
Bear #2 is still a work in progress, she [this one is definitely female] needs some attention to her ears and then she's done.
And . . . Bear #3 who is just 7.5" big is adorable
She's made from 10mm pile faux fur, fully jointed and I made her in record time, just a day and a half to hand stitch everything.
Her name is Lucy Locket, I've decided.
I was particularly pleased that stitching her nose seemed to go smoothly [ I do find this the most difficult thing to do at the moment]
Anyway Bear #2 will be finished soon and Bear #4 has been cut out and is ready to come to life soon . . . please watch this space.
