I have been working on a Pilot's helmet and this is the first result.Having made Soldier and Sailor bears I couldn't leave the Air force men out .
This bear is a funny little thing with quite low ears to accomodate his hat and amber glass eyes. He is made from a spikey mohair of cream amd grey that has been plucked, shaded and had faux stitching added to him.
I was just trying to tink of a name for this cheeky chappie when my husband pointed out Eric 'Winkle' Brown, Britains greatest Pilot - job done!!
Winkle is approximately 31/2" tall and filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears and steel shot in his body for added weight
