I have decided to give a go at the W.A. Teddy Bear Challenge. Now... I might never create a bear I feel is worth sending, but I figured I could at least try!
I got the pattern on Monday and decided to do a test run with some excess grey fur I had laying around. It was the first time I made a bear this size, and it was also the first time I really used steel shot to weight the bear.
I think I over did it... this bear is heavy as heck! Granted, he drapes very nicely in your arms... but still! Holy cow!!
Anyways, here are some pics:
