Friday night when I got home from work was a package waiting for me, my husband had picked up. A beautiful vintage blush mink coat. I instantly wanted to create a bear with this soft dense fur and my little clown collection I have been creating to take to Melbourne with me in a few weeks was put on hold. I traced out my pattern and started cutting and sewing. The body has been created from the striped arms as this fur is far to beautiful to not use the arms too. It wont belong now till the little face peers back at me!
