Lots of Bits & Pieces

I am currently working on two bears in two different sizes and mohair because I would like to see what the bears look like together when finished. I am now ready to start work on the bears faces which is usually a lengthly process, it can take a time to do the initial scissor sculpting of the muzzle and face before sewing the nose and then scissor sculpting some more, but I enjoy this process because this is the point were I start to see the bear develop character and often at this stage their name comes to mind.

On a side note: Do you like my Orange Juice and Strawberry Milk cartoon pencil cases to the left of the image? I have an odd fascination for pencil cases and I am not exactly sure why, but I think these two are particularly cute and fun and couldn’t resist them.
