WIP ... Custom Order #5

Two Custom Teddies
for Lee and Linda
from their family's mink stole

I will be using the cashmere/wool coat for the paw pads

I'm so happy that the coat had a mink collar that matched the color of the mink stole
because I needed to use it! As I was laying out my pattern/lining I realized that I was
quickly running out of useable mink pelts that I needed for my larger pattern pieces (the
legs and feet). There was not much mink left after cutting out all of the pieces so I'm hoping
that nothing needs to be recut.

It takes sooooo much longer when working on two teddies at the same time ...
Saving the best for last ... those sweet-faced heads ...
