Another New Bear and a Blog Party!

Well, I did it, I drew up a new bear pattern and made him, all in one day. I also decided to try my hand at needle felting his muzzle and nose... which I almost didn't do because the pattern is really cute without any modifications... but I thought, no, I had better go for it with the needle felting before I lose my nerve... and I LOVE how he has turned out!!! I have got to make more of these!!!
The entire muzzle was actually felted with white wool... and then completely hand colored by me (I loooove shading)

He has button joints for his arms and legs, and a cotter pin joint for his head... I think he needs a bow or something though... I plan on giving him needle felted paw pads, and I think I'm going to order some apoxy sculpt and make him little claws too.

I'm also going to give this pattern a go in mohair too :) ... but I *really* love how it looks this way.

Also! FawnDear is having a Neverland blog party... so click the image to join in the fun!
