Clare..I do like him very much ...the fabric pattern looks like it meanders over him just right ...of course I know you took some pains to lay out the design and it came out beautifully..
The ruff looks great too ...neat color...funny how some colors you would not think of can go together.
The face looks like your bear...very cute..Interesting choice of materials...we should all try something differet like that just for fun ...Winney
Okay - but I have to admit it's a bit of a cheat!! It's a fancy hairband or 'scrunchy' as they're sometimes called. I have a whole load of them on a kitchen roll holder, you can get such pretty ones!! They're perfect for the job!! I only use them on my contemporary bears, I do handmake them for my old looking bears, ususally from vintage lace.
What a clever use of upholstery fabric. He is very handsome and looks quite elegant.
hmmmmm i reupholstered my honeys old rocking chair- and there was fabric leftover.....maybe I should try this too; after I get the motely 13 dressed.
anyway, you have done a divine job-he is quitesophisticated
Scrunchies!!! What a fantastic idea!!!
We should have a challenge... to make a bear from unique fabric of one's own design.... bear with the most unique fabric and best over all appearance wins. Something like that.. I don't know... would be fun to challenge ourselves to do something out of our comfort zone!!
