Another Custom Teddy ...

from the unusual geometric patterned mink ...

To try to satisfy the following request:

"When you make this next bear, hopefully there won't be a light spot in between the legs. 
Please check for that before you cut if you can.  Thanks."

I laid out the pattern with the bottom front of the teddy in the dark triangle of mink and also following the correct direction of the (downward) hair growth ... 

... this will be the pattern on the front of the teddy body:

Another request was for Trapunto Paw Pads on this teddy. 
For anyone that is considering having me make them Custom Teddies from their mink please be aware that the standard paws for my Custom Teddy is to use the lining from the mink garment for a basic paw pad.
A Trapunto Paw Pad, while not difficult, is very time consuming because there is a lot of extra hand-sewing because each toe is outlined in tiny hand sewn stitches and then each toe is individually stuffed for a 3-D effect. So doing this for each of the 4 paw pads can add several hours on to the construction time ... so there is an extra charge for this style of paw pad.

The basic head has been completed ... just needs ears and final detailing.
