Say hello to Bailey.
He sits at 12cms tall and is made from a beautiful lilac mohair. He is completely handsewn, and has cotterpin joints and german glass eyes.
He is my first bear made from my own pattern, I took the one I used for my other 2 bears and redrew and designed it. I don't think he turned out too bad.
Unfortunately, even though I redesigned the head, similarly to the previous two, when I put in his eyes it pulled his head back and made him look up much more than I wanted him to. The eyes also pull in the back of his head, I'm not quite sure how to overcome that yet. I think I may have to take him for a visit to the bear shop and ask their opinion.
