A couple nights ago I finished this little guy and I just snapped some photos so that I could share him with you. I am proud to introduce my first new bear of 2012, Vinnie. Vinnie is a 9" baby bear made out of a hand tie-dyed alpaca using a grape/wine colored dye. His colors range from richer grape tones to lighter pinks. Vinnie has German black glass eyes and a hand-stitched nose of perle cotton. He has eggplant colored ultrasuede paw/foot pads and eyelids (his eyelids have been hand shaded and his paws/feet have soft-sculpted fingers and toes). Vinnie is fully jointed for poseability. Vinnie's name was chosen because in French and Italian the names for wine are Vin and Vino, respectively. Vinnie is available now for $90.
I hope you like this new little bear! Zac and I are working on a new project together which involves him making paper mache eggs... Hopefully I'll be able to show you some progress on this new project soon!
