new antique bear

Pffff, I am struggling to finish this little bear. I saw this antique mohair in Wiebaden, and just had to buy some, it looks so pretty, but it is really hard to work with this sturdy, but also very fragile material, I had a really hard time, turning the limbs took ages, I think it took me3 times longer to finish this bear, and I am almost done now, so I tought I could already share some pictures with you .
I wanted to give this bear really worn out shoe buttons for eyes, but in the end, I did prefer to ad some more color and chose to give him these pretty handmade eyes, light blue and moss green, They fitted him very wel.I hope you like him :)

Still attach one ear, and stuff his belly.
