I have a list of 'to do' and an Anime style mini was one of them on it. I only has enough material to just do it and hopefully get it right first time. Although its not a true Anime one, I wanted more of a cute cartoon type bear. Its 2 1/2" tall and it gave me a right job. I had'nt done string jointing in years and with the body being so small it was'nt easy. I used needlefelting to add character and found that OK. Hope you like it, as usual I will be taking my chances on ebay soon.
Amanda... he's precious! Love his anime styling! What are the standard 'anime' characteristics.... I mean, I think I know one when I see one.... big head, high nose..... lower eyes.... is there more? Just curious. I'll probably never get around to ever making one....I really think it would be a stylistic stretch for me.... They are just SOOOO cute though! they tend to remind me of "Hello Kitty" from my childhood!

Amanda, this koala is VERY cute. I'm not usually a huge koala fan; they look too "nose-y" when made into stuffed animals, not like the sweet things they are in real life. But this one is just too cute. I think the anime styling suits it particularly well! Great work!
Amanda fantastic....wowow.....he made me giggle....he is so cute. And his sizE~! 2.5" I am so impressed. You are truly marvelous-mini-maven!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
I wish you lived closed, I want to hold him. And you did such a great job on the face and on the nose! WOW....
when you consider how big his head must be the nose is really remarkable.
Thank you so much for sharing him....he was a treat!
