August is a quite shy, 18cm tall brown bear, born in the last days of the Sum­mer. I made him with my new pat­tern, which makes him look­ing even more like a young lum­ber­ing bear. He has hand­made Ger­man glass eyes. His fur is of sparse antique style mohair to add to his lit­tle per­son­al­i­ty some more of  well much loved vin­tage appear­ance.  His limbs are firm­ly stuffed with wood shav­ings and are well pos­able. To his bel­ly I added some steel shot, safe­ly put into a cot­ton pouch, for more love­ly weight.
August is wear­ing a silk plant-dyes scarf to hold his neck warm.
Wish­ing love­ly Sep­tem­ber days to all,
Love, Ele­na
