The bears and pillow have been finished! I took a number of photos. There are two medium bears (11.5″ tall) one small bear (8″ tall) and 1 pillow (16″ x 12″) with an invisible zipper. The back of the pillow was made from the lining of the coat. The bow on the pillow is removable.
The paw pads and inner ears were made from a special suede like fabric in a tan color to contrast with the black mink so that the bears do not look like black blobs. Their noses are also tan and they each have some white under their eyes so that you can see their faces. There were 3 initials on the lining of the coat. They were too large to all be included on one bear. Since there were three bears, I appliqued each initial onto the bow of each one of the bears.
