Meet “Rufus” a bear for all seasons, and One-Of-A-Kind. I decided to make a Panda bear this month. I have had this idea in my head for weeks, and was excited to finally bring him to life! He is a bit serious, but a delightful bear. He has made friends with the other bears in my studio, and is well liked for his witty conversation. He is feeling a bit trepidatious about being adopted but all the other bears have assured him that he would only go to a very good home where they will love him.

I used a good quality German mohair in a stone color, and a black color for him. I gave him glass eyes, a hand stitched nose, and mouth, and some hand shaded details using PanPastels, and acrylic paints. I hand shaded the back around each eye. I also gave him a few small repair stitches in both of his ears. He is all lovingly hand stitched, and generously and firmly rag stuffed with some ground walnut shells added for weight. His head is firmly stuffed with a good poly fill for dimension. His head, arms, and legs are all stitched into place. He sits well on his own. I made him a little collar out of a strip of aged cloth and added the wooden letters XO, and hand stitched on 4 tiny rusty bells. He also has a ribbon around his neck that match some of the fabric on his box he is sitting on. He is all hand stitched, and comes from a smoke free home.

He comes with the box he is sitting on. I continued with the black and white theme with the box. I covered the box with a really nice black with tiny off-white polka dot fabric.The strip of fabric around the middle matches the ribbons around his neck, and the rim of the box lid. I hand stitched rusty bells in a larger, and tiny size on the strip of fabric on the box. I also added fabric to the inside of the box lid, and bottom. All of my boxes are hand done, and no two will be exactly alike. I love all the aged details I gave it.
