Hi from Scotland, I’m also new and have only tried making one bear which was not good but I did use very cheap fake fur which was stretchy so I decided to pay out for real mohair ?but am terrified with my lack of skill that I produce the same again.
However it has to be done I will definitely feel the pressure of trying to produce what resembles a bear ? all I can feel is FEAR.
Theses forums are fantastic to read and are so informative.
Lovely to join all of you and hopfully at some point I can in time show you a well made bear
