Chester is a lovely big *for me* Original Mon Bear, standing at 11" tall (though he is a seated bear).
He was intended to be part of the upcoming December eBearShow, but silly me posted a sneak peek preview pic and he got snapped up!
I'm particularly proud of his beautiful eyes, as I hand painted them myself.
Hope you all like him
Thanks so much Monique.
This little panda taught me the open mouth and pulled toes techniques.The pattern is designed by the great bear artist Linda Benson.I find Linda's patterns are really well written and easy to follow for an inexperienced bearmaker like me and she was very supportive and helpful with any queries I had.
