Dying and choosing eyes

Dying my mohair always makes me happy, It is one of my favorit things in the bear making proces.

Sometimes I dye after  cutting and stitching and sometimes before.
But choosing the eyes is always a difficult task for me, this really gives the bear his certain character.

Here some pictures.

I finally chose old shoe buttons, wich are not pictured above.

here some of the finished bears

Oh I love seeing how your bears come together. Your new ones are gorgeous, love the colours and their characters. I need to get saving for my next one!

I think you are one of the best dyers out there. I would love someday to learn how you get that dark back with the color on the fur, it is really special.
