Duncan is only 4½" tall.
He wears a lovely hooded jacket.
His arm and legs are articulated...
So he can wave hello!
And he can stand up or sit down.
He's not perfect as I couldn't completely figure out parts of the pattern and the tiny pieces are quite fiddly to sew up and I've not done that perfectly. I also need more practice on making his nose and mouth. Anyway, room for improvement as always but I LIKE HIM!
So then I decided to also make his friend, Jamie. Jamie doesn't have a coat but wears a scarf wrapped around his neck. He is even smaller than Duncan and stands at only 3½" tall. My daughters really like him and I think I'll have to make these tiny bears again to go in their stockings…
I bought some cream wool and am making a polar bear version next. I think that one will wear a red coat.
Hope your Christmas preparations are going well. I still have many handmade gifts on my list left to complete.
