I have gotten quite enamored with making a few bears in a smaller size. This one is 4.25 inches tall. You have seen him here before, but I wanted to remind you what he looked like because I am interested in your thoughts.
He is made from this fur fabric. It is very soft and I enjoy working with it. It’s the same fabric that Sebastian is made from although he is a different color.
Recently I finished this bear. On first glance he probably looks quite a bit like the one before.
When I was at the Hunt Valley Christmas Teddy Bear Show, I succumbed and purchased one, just one, small piece of fabric that is similar, yet subtly different. I created the bear pictured above from it. The photo below is that fabric. It has a much shorter pile.
Perhaps if you see the fabric side by side the difference between them is more noticeable.
Here’s a close-up view – the pile is almost non-existent on the new piece seen at the top of the photo.
Now, as for the bears, can you see much of a difference?
