Hurray, It may have taken me four weeks but here are the finished bears. As you can see; they ended up quite big.
Each one is made from slightly different fibres of yarn but the same fluffy white yarn too. I was really surprised to find that the wool based yarn behaved so differently to the polyester based yarn that I practically had to re-write the pattern for each!
Here is a better picture of the little guys without me in the way.
