New bagged Bear on the Bridge
I thought you might like to see the kind of bear that I normally make.
I like the new look bears, but my favorite bears are the teds that look like real old teds.
Made from older style patterns
I've used my last pair of real boot button eyes on this guy, so I will spend ages hunting down more boot buttons.
Soggibottom bears are older style bears.
This guy hasn't been messed around with. No face shaping, no shading.
A traditional hand sewn mohair bear with a growler so he can talk.
He could have told me that the postman had come this morning while we were out.
A very, very big surprise as I wasn't expecting a parcel from Canada.
Ages ago Dolores made her daughter a bag, I admired it from afar when it was posted on her blog and cheekily asked for the pattern.
I promptly forgot about it as I thought I had maybe pushed my luck and was far too cheeky to ask anyway.
Such a surprise to find the parcel from Dolores with not just the pattern, but with two beautifully made bags.
They are both so well made and one is lined and has inner pockets.
Thank you very much Dolores.
I have trouble carrying bags, they have to go on my shoulder.
Dolores you will never know how I love and appreciate these.
Even more because you made them and were so kind and thoughtful to send them.
The bear in the bag ?
They get everywhere don't they ?
