This is my newest design. He measures just over 2 inches and is made from long pile vintage uv. I finished him a couple of weeks ago but he has proved impossible to photograph. This photo is terrible bt I wanted to show you. His ears look terrible in this photo - they are sewn on properly! There's a few things I want to change about this design...his forehead is quite wide and his face isn't as cute as I wanted. Still, conisdering I haven't sewn one this small for ages, I'm pretty happy!
Melissa... he's precious! I don't think his forhead is too wide at all! I think the wide forhead gives them a nice babyish look.... an innocence.
I have a tough time photographing the UV that has a sheen on it like that too! I wonder if it confuses the camera or something! Oh, I think he's just perfect!
Beary truly yours,

Darling! And actually, one of the appeals of the minis for me IS that fabric (UV) sheen, that "regular" mohair and bear fabrics, for the big guys, just don't have. So don't knock it, difficult to photograph or not. It really makes these little ones unique and even easier to identify.
thanks guys...I don't dislike him - it was just in my head he was meant to be roundy looking and cute and he came out like my usual chicken legs and arms. I want to remake him in some sassy fabric but I'm frantically trying to finish two bears for a competition on Friday morning (it being Monday night here already) eek I forsee no sleep this week!
