8" (20cm)

Rupert is an antique looking bear, made of high Quality real antique mohair, from a sofa owned by my grandmother.
He has black shiny glass eyes. two old ribbons and a badge.
His nose is embroidered waxed black cotton, He is stuffed with polyester fiber and steel shot to give him extra weight.
He has this lovely glance over him, he is really lovely.
The old mohair used for Rupert has been thoroughly washed, several times. The fabric is still very strong, I plucked it more to give it a worn look.
On his feed pads the letter "R" is written, probably by his previous owner? ;)

Always a mess

When I make a bear, or wathever I make, it always ends in a mess,
I think no one spends so much time in organising things (especially crafty things)
like me, and still always it is like this! :(
I begin cutting the fabric, cleaning my desc, sorting pieces,,, so far okay, then the sewing on the sewing machine, ,, a little mess, Than more sewing, handsewing, plucking the mohair,
,,,and,,, little bit more mess,
but then, jointing, colouring, eyes,,,everything, and in the end it's always like this!!
What is that with me??
When I am finishing something , I always forget about the mess and only see what becomes of my creations, than the work is finished and I am surprised seeing the mess! Any tips for me???
