Monica's Elegant Lady pattern & kit is now available.

The pattern is only available from Monica direct. She also has kits for the outfit and the hand made leather shoes.
The kit to make the bear is available now at Bear Essence for $69.95. The Elegant Lady bear kit contains the mohair, eyes, joints, ultrasuede for eyelids, eyelashes, perle thread, adhesive nose felt & white ultrasuede for eyes. We have also included a piece of ultrasuede for the paws instead of reversing the mohair as specified in the pattern.

She is just gorgeous, you will love making her!
