Hi, im real curious about how to have the muzzle different colour!! bear_shocked
I see many bears that have a different muzzle colour to the rest of the face and body.
Is this done by another peice of fabric or dyed or something?? thanks  bear_original

The most common way of adding a different colour muzzle is slicing the muzzle off the pattern adding a seam allowance and cutting the material from a different colour.

People can also shade/paint the muzzle depending on the fur colour and others needle felt a muzzle on.  Hope this elps!

AdArdenOut.jpgHi there!  Yes, mine are done just the way that Bronwen described above.  Cut the muzzle off the side head piece, then add on a seam allowence along each of the new cut edges.  If you want the upper nose area to also be a different color, you can cut off a triangular piece of the gusset....  sort of from the area where it curves in near the eyes, and extending to a point (or a rounded curve) near the forhead area. Again, you have to remember to add in a new seam allowence along both of your new cut edges.  Hope this helps!

I just recently started doing this and slice mine as well, Although mine is a little more than just the muzzle. I have done only 3 bears like this so far but love the way they came so much I am going to do loads more.
