A few weeks ago I was designing a pattern for a friend in South Africa who is farming with goats. These little goats are as cute as can be. She wanted a pattern that she could use to make soft-sculpted goats to sell at fairs and shows. At the same time I was busy making Bubbles. I played around a bit and tried the long goat ears on him just to see what it would look like. He looked so sweet, not like a goat, more like a puppy, so he officially became a doggie-bear.
Bubbles is made of short yellowish sparse mohair. He has big black glass puppy eyes and there is a little bag with lead shot in his tummy, so he is quite heavy for his 5" size.
I so enjoyed making this little one.
