The un-named polar bear

Here's the little teddy I've finished this week.   He is made from a beige mohair fabric - I think that he looks like a very dirty polar bear.  His ears are very small - I normally make my bears with much larger ears - and his nose is quite pointed which gives him the polar bear-ish look.

I'm still toying with different names for him - he's definitely a boy, his face tells me so!

I've thought of Icile (but he's too dirty), Percy polar bear (but isn't that a penguins' name?) and Igloo (strange, I know!) but I'm still undecided.  Any suggestions would be most welcome, I'm having trouble naming this one, I've usually got the name before I finish the bear.

I am going to enter him into the Magical Crafts challenge - Animal antics.  This is a brilliant blog for ANY crafts, not just card making.

Here he is sitting on my work table - actually my dining table.  I am not blessed with the luxury of a room to craft in.  It gives a better perspective of size if you can see him with every day objects.

Thanks for looking and pop back soon,

What about Brody (gaelic for ditch) or Brod (which sounds a strong name for a dirty chap!)

Awwww Amanda he is absolutely adorable. I thought from the first photo's that he was quite big, but in perspective with the items in the fianl photo, he is so diddy, you must be very nimble fingered.

Thank you so much for sharing him with us over at Magical Crafts.
