After spending so much time over the last few weeks working on our new patterns for the 'Lost Toy's collection (see last post), I was itching to get back to my roots and make a bear from my original style. So I rummaged through my patterns box and found this one I had drawn up over a decade ago for a big 20" bear. I also found a large piece of blonde distressed mohair that I had been hoarding for the right bear.
And 'Bailey' was born.
(just quietly, I LOVE him!)
