Classic Bears for Spring

I have been focused on re-working the smaller classic bears, I suppose each and every vintage bear was different and I find endless possibilities for small changes in proportion and shape.   Recently I have focused on the little signs of age, tufts of hair, crushed hair and light fading to capture some of the charms which I enjoy.  So the latest two bears Lewis (13 ") and William (15") have been made from the same piece of fabric which was organically hand dyed then faded and gently fatigued: My ideal was to make them look older without adding too much in the way of worn patches and staining... these are just supposed to look well loved but not worn.    Each is an individual bear.  Both bears are available now on my website www.hugoshouse.com - my webmail account provider has been a little unreliable but it seems to be working at the moment.
