Minkle is made from the same new design as Mudge that I made yesterday as I was already missing him but Minkle is made from blonde mohair that has been heavily aged. Taking of heavy, he is a very heavy bear for someone who is only 31/2" tall! and has a very big fat tummy and a wide head. I have plucked, shaded and waxed him for extra character. He has brown glass eyes and a sparsely embroidered nose and smiley mouth. He is 5 way cotterpin jointed and is filled with kapok and has steel shot in his tummy .
