I also know a 'Bendy Wendy', but that's a different story altogether.
This Wendy is my first attempt at a grown up bear, she has a cotter pin jointed head and limbs,and she's much bigger than I usually make - about 12" high. Getting the joints in the right places was 'challenging', she's ended up with one arm slightly higher than the other,and her feet pads don't match, hence her name, but she was fun to do . She's made from a short,dense pile mohair, and I actually used some of my precious Kitty - craft fabric for her ears and paw pads. : 0
A word of warning though, this type of mohair is a bugger to work with if you are trying to stitch it to fabric, it slips about all over the place so I would probably use a different mohair if I make one again.
This is a great book for Teddy bear patterns.

There are some very cute bears and rabbits in here
( Absolutely no comment on the names of these two )
It has very clear instructions with step by step photos, and full sized patterns for all the bears - and there are a lot of them - over 40 in fact !
Happy weekend everyone !
