Gosh, I nearly forgot to blog Valentino – do you like the name? Well, it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow! 

The red polka dot fabric was already sewn in, so when I was wondering what theme to go with, I simply added a red felted heart to his tummy. To be honest, I started this bear months ago but I only got as far as sewing his head together, so I thought it was time to finish one job before starting another.

Valentino is made from mohair fabric, red polka dot fabric for his paw pads and inner ears and measures 8½ inches from top to toe. He is 5-way jointed, has black glass eyes and is filled with firm fibre filling and steel shot for weight. To finish I have used distress inks and fake repair stitches to give him a lovely vintage look, with a ribbon and 2 rusty bells around his neck.

I hope you like Valentino and wish you a perfectly lovely Valentine’s Day tomorrow!!
