Middleton is made from black wavy viscose and ultra suede paws and stands 5" tall. He has brown glass eyes and a sparse, embroidered nose. Middleton is a traditional design and fully cotterpin jointed. Black bears are quite rare as not only are they more difficult to sew, they are also hard to photograph, but I have really enjoyed making black bears this year and hope to make many more in the months coming up to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, when black bears where made in memory of all those lost on board. Middleton wears a rusty old bell around his neck on a piece of old lace.
