2009 Christmas Bear -- Joy Holly



I have finished this cute little bear just right before Christmas.

She should be the entrant of Teddys Bit's Mystery competition, but I didn't make it to the deadline...
Anyway, the compeition was about the teddy bear supplier shop sell a kit,
but it doesn't have pattern, only 3 different colour of short pile mohair -- brown, green & red.

We have to use these 3 colours of mohair to make a bear with X'mas theme.I designed the pattern, choose the eye size, joints and paw pads.And here she is, "Joy Holly".

She is about 20 cm height, has black glass eyes, 5 ways lock nut joint sets, wool stuffing with X'mas theme paw pads.As I want her to free stand, I used a lot of garnet powder in her both legs. She is wearing a green Tee with 2 big Christmas buttons, with silver tinsel ribbon around the arms. As well as a red skirt with gold tinsel ribbon.

Both of her ears also have bells in there, the bells will ring when you move her.

Oh! And she is also carrying a Christmas sock, and wow! She got a gift from Santa!
