I'm so busy at the moment , but thoroughly enjoying the warm weather and sewing outside every day pretty much...so bear making is a sheer joy right now!
This latest bear is called SHANTUNG and he has a very baby like face..in fact he was almost a she but I decided to go mad with the haircut and so Shantung was born!! He is made from the densest alpaca in a sludgy tea shade and i used some Tibetan lamb which I have hand dyed and inset as a patchwork of shades in his crown area and then given him a very rounded but shattered haircut a bit reminiscent of the Ball Jointed Dolls hairdo's which I really like.
SHANTUNG is quite big at 18 inches with wired arms and legs for extensive posing possibilities. I added a pretty ruffle in dusty shades which I think suits him very nicely.
SHANTUNG has now been adopted , Thank you
