My eye has been drawn towards the more neutral tones in my fabric stash this week. As much as I love working with colour, now and again I feel the urge to make a less flambuoyant, more traditional bear - there's a great deal to be said for a no-nonsense, classic bear!

I have several new bears underway, 20" Henry my new dark honey coloured alpaca bear and three others yet to come, each in a neutral shade with pure wool felt paw pads ... the wool felt really complements this style of bear, it's inherently traditional and perfect for an old fashioned guy!

20" Henry, my latest 'Timeless Ted'.

Anyway, the upshot of this post is ... here's Henry! I've gently stuffed him for a little 'slump' appeal; I wish you could hold him, he feels wonderful - alpaca is wonderfully tactile, perfect for such a cuddlesome bear!
