I have done a colorful ruff and felt ball for little Kenzo. And I have taken more pictures of him...many, many pictures! It was really great fun, I think he looks good on pictures. With brown bears I am always a little worried because I feel it is a very difficult colour to photograph. I guess I'm slowly learning.
Kenzo has been adopted, thank you!

I have taken some pictures of my newly finished brown bear cub. I haven't sewn his felt ball and ruff yet, but it is a sunny day today, and as we are not enjoying that many lately, I wanted to make the best of it.

Here is the face.
Isn't he precious? I just hope his mummy will also appreciate him as he is a commission!

After a couple of days hard work, I am finally on the right track I think.
He still needs some finishing touches. His eyes need still more slanting on the outer edges. And I want to give him whiskers. Also his ears need some shading.
I have been working so much on him that I am loosing perspective. It happens sometimes when I work long on a project, I cannot see it with a critical eye anymore, my brain gets used to it.
The solution is:
-take some pictures
-leave it be for a while
This means that for the next days I will be working on the brown alpaca bear cub....under the curious eyes of my little unfinished kitten!

I have two projects under way. One is a kitten. I chose a very nice faux fur that is soft and quite realistic. He is all sewn, turned....
Then, my other project is a commission for a brown bear in the style of my polar bear Dodo. The fabric I'm using is just exceptional. A super soft dark brown Schulte alpaca. I have only cut and trimmed here, there is still a lot to do (I don't even want to think in hours terms here).
To be or not to be......

I took plenty of pictures of him.
Lapo has been adopted, thank you!
