Meet Kathryn.
She is another big girl. Apx 9 inches.
She is made with the same pattern as the sleepy flower bear below.
I made her out of a vintage synthetic fur. This fur is very soft and fluffy. It is the perfect size pattern to use this fur. She has black suede paw pads.
The fur is very special to me as it was my Mom's.
She wanted to make a fur coat out of it but never got the chance to. It must be 30 yrs or so old.
I named the bear Kathryn after my Mom.

What a wonderful idea! One of the ladies who used to be in my doll club specializes in making bears from people's old fur coats and wedding dresses. Makes for very special heirlooms. This little bear is a cutie.
