A Vintage Style Bear/ Make over

It has been awhile since I posted a bear. I have several on the go at different stages to be finished. Here is May. A vintage style bear. This is my first vintage style bear. She is about 10" tall, made from mohair. May has loose joints and stuffed with steel shot and poly filling. She has a nice weight to her. It took me awhile to age her as I have not done that to a bear before. It is a bit scary to make a bear look old when I make bears look new, if you know what I mean. The funny thing is I had a job with the nose to make it look old.

I have made so changes with May. Trimming back the fur as it was too long. Making her a simple dress out of a vintage hanky. I like the new May better.
