Still sewing

I'm going to work on a new pattern tomorrow in the midst of bears I need to make for orders.

Found some pretty white fur to make polars.  Scarfs and mittens and a cap if I can create one where their ears can stick out.

My arm hurts!

And I'm exhausted. Enlisted help for bear orders and that went oh too well.

Sewing sewing sewing

If I stay up, I can probably get three more bears completed and that would put me over 50 bears ready and I've still got the rest of Oct and all of Nov to produce.

I just might not take old material into the new year (which is fast approaching).

Back to work.

That time again

Pulling out the bear stuff.

First goal:  Get enough bears/dolls done for two different events.

Second goal:  Do not take any material or fur into 2018.  Sew it all up!

Long, long time

Still making bears.

Last year, this bear, Gretchen, appeared in the magazine Soft Dolls & Animals.  Way cool.

I used to be a vest-


Two decades ago when I started bear making, a friend gave me a vest made out of fur.  Her sister had given it to her but she no longer wanted it. 

I told her I would give her the bear that I made from it but when it was done, I just couldn't.  I gave her another bear I made though.

I can see what I didn't know about trimming-- the ears, the muzzle, around the nose area BEFORE you insert the plastic nose!-- but I still think he's cute. 

To this very day.
