Evan the First

Here is my first Bear.  He is 12" tall and made out of 10 mm distressed Golden Helmbold Mohair . He was a lot of work considering I didn't even know how to sew on a sewing machine or make Bears. But being so inspired by all the Artists I had admired for many years and my love for the Antique German, American, English and French Teddy Bears, I was determined. I used some distressed methods and some shading with tea and artist chalk. He has glass German eyes and French Perle cotton embroidery and is fully disked.
