Well, my daughter rang the other day and asked if I had lost a teddy leg. She had found it under one of her sofas when she took her trees and decorations down.
At least the mystery is solved and if I make another bear in the same colours I only need to make one leg :)
My next two Pud Bears are a 4" white sparse mohair and this little 6" pink tipped one. She has big blue eyes.
I also have a box full of old characters to clean up and mend. Here are a selection of them -
|Half way there|
I have just looked at the bear with the sheepskin body and unstitched a few bits. Doesn't she look better? (I have decided that this bear is a girl).
|'As nature intended'|
The left foot was missing so I have used some of the sheepskin to form a new one. I have only pinned it so far and you can just see the pin heads if you look carefully.
I still don't know what make she is, but with her contrasting muzzle I am thinking possibly German.
I will keep researching to try to find her maker.
