Beary cute...

I've been working on a bear design and decided it was time to make it, of course I didn't have any mohair, but I did have vintage camel hair fabric and little " Bailey" was "born". I designed my own pattern so I guess she is an original girlie too!
Usually I try to make my creations as close to my drawings as possible, but as you can see "Bailey" decided otherwise. She can stand on her own with just a little positioning and I've made her jointed with cotter pins and discs at her neck ,shoulders and hips.I also needle felted the whites of her eyes with some cream wool roving, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but still I'm not sure I would want to make felted creations like my friend Teresa what a talented lady!
I'm also in the process of making a dress for her, her shoes are almost done as well, cause a little girlie needs something to protect her footsies...er... paws!
These are a few pic's of Bailey, from the start and in between.








All in all I'm pleased with her and I think she is a beary cute little bear.
