Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes...
I'll never love blue eyes again...

How many of you remember the song written in the 1940's with those lyrics? Well, brown eyes often provide a gentler look than black eyes on bears, so why not take advantage of our special offer and give you bears some beautiful brown eyes!

With the Easter break behind us and mid-year already just around the corner, get yourself organised for winter bearmaking with our latest Special.

Our 10cm little Byron bear is cute enough to be held in your hand or slipped into a school shirt or dress pocket! He is created from short, sparse Schulte mohair (colours may vary in kit) and is thread jointed (no discs to connect — but you can add discs if you wish) so his legs and arms are still moveable. His head is ladder stitched to his body. Ultrasuede footpads only (i.e. no pawpads) and he has small black onyx bead eyes.

Kit includes photo, pattern and instructions.

Price: R110 excluding postage.

Fingertip brushes back in stock!
