I am definitely on a roll :o) I was wondering how to finish off this bear and I liked him so much, I decided minimal accessories were needed, so I just made him an old fashioned leather collar, decorated with vintage bells. He looks brilliant with it.

Doolan is 4 inches and is made from a longer Shulte mohair than I usually use. It's a traditional rich brown in colour. He has distressed wool felt paw pads, excelsior and stainless steele shot stuffing, amber glass eyes and a waxed nose. Doolan's paws, face and ears have been shaded with permanent fabric paints and this gives him a wonderful vintage look. Please email me for more details if you are interested in Doolan. Thanks for peeking!
