Adoni the sunset bear

This is the big guy I've been working on quietly over the last few days. Meet Adoni. He's 20" of gorgeous, bright mohair goodness!

I will admit it was a bit of a gamble, (in my eyes anyway) putting these colours together. I really didn't want him to come out looking like a bumble-bee... and wasn't too sure how it would all come together in the end. Even last night, when I was sewing his nose and jointing his limbs I was a bit worried that he just wouldn't look right. But with fresh eyes this morning, and a touch of shading and some accessories, I think he is pretty damn good! (lol - how modest is that hey!?)

Chelsea didn't get to have much to do with his construction this time round. Most of the work on him was done while she was asleep. But she did help me soft through my ribbon and beads box to find his accessories, and reached over to give him a kiss on the arm. (another little habit she has picked up from somewhere. Oliver gets forced kissed on the nose all the time too!)

So Adoni comes with a free 'kiss of approval'!

    Has tenido muy buena idea de hacerlo con esos colores

  5. Oh he came out brilliantly, love the colours (maybe because I'm just cutting out a bear right now where the mohair is that bright yellow over a similar bright orange colour backing!)

  6. He's perfect! I love his colourful expression! he can be a summer or halloween boy with them. It's true, sometimes is important to sleep one night and the next day you can see the bear with other eyes.
