    Arnold bear stands just 5 inches tall when completed but is full of character. He is five way jointed and has a needle felted nose (instructions for this included, although his nose can be embroidered if you prefer). Loves to wear a short fur (my favourite is a sparse mohair as this can be plucked with tweezers to create a nice clear face).
    He has the funniest little face, great fun to create and once your bear is born, I guarantee he'll make you smile : ) Previous experience of bear or soft toy making will be a help, although I've included lots of reference photos and tips to help.
