Another bear - and about time too!

It has been a whilte since I posted one of my bear pictures onto my blog.  To be honest, I did finish this one about 2 weeks ago but I knew that I would have to schedule a few posts during June so I've saved him for one of those.

He's made with a vintage short pile rayon, with ultra suede paw pads.  I'm not sure how tall he is but here he is in my hand - so that give's a bit better perspective of his size. 

Ooooh, and if you rememer my last bear posting, the unanamed polar bear, I said that he was like a dirty polar bear and I couldn't decide on the name.  He is now proudly named Bertie, thanks to the suggestion by The Crafty Duck.  When I was in junior school there was a boy in my class that we called Dirty Bertie because he always left a bit of KitKat at the sides of his mouth for Ron (Later Ron!).  So my polar bear is now called Dirty Bertie.

If time allows, I'll post a few pictures on how I made him.

Thanks for stopping by,
