This little guy is 8 inches tall. He is made from German mohair and has worn out boot button eyes. I thought about making him into a clown bear but he just wasn't into the whole clown hat thing. He says he is too small for a big hat . . . so he won that battle, LOL. Funny how they get to decide !
He was OK with the rusty bells on his lace collar though.
His mohair has been distressed for an old bear look and I have squished his excelsior stuffing to give him a bit of a belly.
I am very excited to announce the opening of my second Etsy Shop: ~ Old Soul Bears ~ to Showcase my handmade teddy bears and related vintage treasures. The following items have already been listed. I will be adding additional items throughout the week. Please stop by for a visit.
