This is the strangely-traditional-looking Charles.  It is weird: I always used to be dislike traditional-looking teddy bears, thinking they were unoriginal, but I am starting to appreciate them now (or maybe just going through a very unoriginal phase).

It does, for me, answer the question of what to do with non-standard colours of mohair.  I don't know if you remember, but I made a bear in this colour mohair before.  I always thought the colour looked a little strange - but somehow it looks better on Charles.

Finally, did you know that Charles is made from the same design as Clement, the bear in my last post?  I just made the muzzle a little bit longer.  What do you think?  An improvement?
