This is Clement - a portly-looking bear with a strange tuxedo-like bib. In grey. Why I went for that combination, I've no idea(!)
I'm also not sure about his very bald muzzle. This was another bear for whom I didn't have a close colour match in wool roving, so needle-felting was out of the question. Whilst I do like the very direct, open gaze (he does look like a friendly sort of bear), I think the muzzle itself is too plain and simple. What he could really do with is a moustache - either a little toothbrush number, or a wide, handlebar version.
My only concern is that this would put him in doll territory.
Perhaps I should make a pin-on moustache and leave it to the customer to decide!
