Ginger 3 1/4" open mouth bear

Here is my first open mouth miniature bear. I enjoyed making him for the Outside your comfort zone challenge on Teddy Talk. I also designed a new leg and arm pattern. I used plenty of needlesculpting too. I feel a panda would be brilliant like this.....

Derwin on ebay

Hi. I have listed Derwin on ebay. He is the first panda of the year. I have started with a low starting price as I think its a good way of getting out there. I'm working on an open mouth bear at the moment. Although it has given me a slight headache. I think I need one of those lights with a magnifiyning glass. I've done the head and a new arm pattern. So far so good.

Grrrr on ebay now

I finally got Grrrr onto ebay tonight. He is the first miniature black bear and about only the third I've ever made. I must admit although I don't really collect bears I do have a soft spot for dark or black ones. I was pleased how he turned out as sometimes black bears look too mean!

New Bears

Hi everyone. I hope this week to get my act together and do some more designing. I should finish a little black bear today. Never the easiest of bears to do. I think I've only made two before and they were large ones. After that I want to start developing a new style as part of The Teddy Talk challenge. Its to try something that really does challenge you and is'nt your usual thing. We'll see!

After all this time....

Well after a shaky start of just sitting there, I got sewing! A leg did get thrown away but I would say I have the start of a bear. Watch this space!
