036-300x225.jpg002-231x300.jpgI just listed a realistic black bear cub on ebay.  Her name is Alpine. Black bear cubs have a light face when they are born, so she has a light face, and pick nose of a baby.  She is 11" tall, made of mohair.  Her face is needle felted, and then the mohair has been rooted into the felt.  It has allowed me to do most of the shading with the mohair itself.  I have given her open/ sleepy eyes, and removed the neck joint.  I am using a lockline type armature to give her a neck and spine instead.  It allows her to put her head up and down. 

I have added a lot of detail to the description here so that Wubbie Bear can see the bear through the words written.  I hope this helps and you can see her Wubbie.

She is listed on ebay till 7/24 … 8227791972

Thanks, Joanne, for the nice description.  I wish I could feel your bear.  Maybe one of these days I'll be able to have one of your bears.

You just keep getting better and better.  Alpine looks so real that I'm sure if you listened closely, you could hear his heart beat.  You are so talented.  Hugs, Jan
