I’m afraid I’ve rather fallen for my latest creation. This is Dylan; all 7½ inches of him! I knew as soon as I saw the pattern that I must make him. 

Dylan is from a pattern by Sylvie Touzard (next picture). The original bear I think is made from Viscose, which I didn’t have, so I used a similar colour mohair and cut it back quite a lot.

I’ve been as true to the pattern as I can; right down to his funny little trousers. The pattern calls for an old sock! However, I used the end of a sleeve of an old jumper I was going to throw out – to the same effect more or less; and then simply added some ribbon and I also added a couple of bells. And what about that cute little fat tummy – similar to mine right now, but that’s not why I love him so much LOL

Dylan has black glass eyes, a stitched nose and is filled with fibre fill and steel shot. I think he’s going to take pride of place – certainly for the time being anyway!
