This is the second Kewpie Bear in my Limited Edition Series. Each teddy will be from the same pattern but a different mink, so each teddy will be unique.
To see details and more photos of this teddy please go to my Adoption Website (Waiting List Adoption page).
I must say this I absolutely LOVE the vintage blond mink jacket that I used for this teddy. I wish all of my vintage minks were of this quality: dense and fluffy hairs that were a dream to scissor sculpt. But most important the pelt was soooo easy to hand sew, it was more like sewing fabric than a leather pelt. My hands did not hurt at all after hand-sewing this entire teddy.
I want to thank my friend and fellow teddy bear artist, Linda Hearn, for sending me this wonderful mink for me to create some of my favorite creatures.
