I always have a Soldier Bear on the go when I am travelling long distances. This time it was Reg Entwhistle who I have just finished making.
Reg is approximately 3 & 1/2" tall and made from red mohair that has been aged to look like a well loved bear that has been through the wars. He has one pink and one blue glass eye and a sparsely stitched nose. He is 5 way cotterpin jointed and filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears, and has steel shot in his body for added weight. He wears a silver coloured hope charm around his neck and comes with his own handmade military bag
