A few years ago I had the brilliant idea to make a bear from an Australian lambskin. The bear was deliciously soft, but I had so much trouble making the bear that I vowed never to do it again...

That was until this week, when I went back to the lambskin store and purchased not just one, but TWO huge lambskins with CRAZY thick, long pile fleece.

This not-so-little lady you see before you is the first of two bears to be made from those skins.

Her name is 'Nessa', which means 'lamb'. Perfect!

Yes my fingers are sore, but she was so worth it! You can check her out on bearpile and etsy.
