This is my latest bear BONGO which I entered in the 2009 People's Choice Competition of the Sydney Teddy Bear Fair. I'm thrilled to say that I'm a finalist in my Category - Section 4: Dressed or Fantasy Bear.
This is a completely new design for me, and also quite a large bear (well, for me anyway) - he sits at 24cm. I've been used to making much smaller bears - most of my previous bears have been 6" or 9" standing.
As this is a People's Choice voting competition, I would appreciate all the votes I can get - if you would like to see the competition entries (and hopefully vote for me), here's the link: www.sydneyteddybearfair.com and just follow the prompts.
