Versatile Viscose

I have been dying again.....the colour splashes on the kitchen tiles are proof!!
I have recently discovered viscose plush fabric and found it makes lovely old looking vintage style bears. Here are the first to be finished.....

This is Scruffbags, so called because he looks rather bedraggled and sorry for himself!! He is made from chocolate brown hand dyed viscose with matching colour foot pads and is 7" (17.5cm) tall, a new size bear! Scruffbags has little black glass eyes and a roughly stitched, old and worn looking nose. He is wearing his grey crocheted scarf so if it is chilly on the way to the Winter Bearfest he will still be snuggly warm!!

And this is little Raspberry Ruffle....

She is mead from dark brown and pink hand dyed viscose and she is called Raspberry Ruffle after the chocolate sweets of the same name! Yum!! She has dark brown foot pads, a dark brown embroidered nose and tiny black glass eyes. Raspberry Ruffle is just 4.75" (12cm) tall.

                                Scruffbags and Raspberry Ruffle pose for the camera!
