|At last, here he is. Meet Kilby, my very first self-designed bear. We have just caught him coming back from the lake where he was retrieving his dinner, so don't mind the fish in his mouth. At least the rest of them are still on the string.
He is 23" tall and made with synthetic fur. Nut and bolt joints and safety eyes. His body is filled with poly pellets and polyfill. The rest of him is all polyfil. He also sports a hand embroidered nose.
Kilby is also my first attempt at the pulled toes, and the sculpted muzzle.
