3 Custom Memory Fur Bears from Mink Stole

Friday, June 26, 2015



I'm not sure if you remember, but about 6 weeks ago I posted a photo of a collector's mother's mink stole.  She wanted 3 memory bears created from it (and wanted to incorporate a small fox stole with them as well).  Well these 3 bears are ready to give out some serious hugs!!

In case you missed that first post, here is what these guys started out as:  

Here were the first steps along the way to becoming "re-born" into memory bears



And of course, each bear needed his very own  portrait taken!  It's fun to see how similar yet different each bear turns out.

More New Bears!

Friday, May 15, 2015

I don't think I mentioned that I will be working on 3 special memory bears for a special collector from a lovely fur stole that she had sent to me.  I took a photo of it before I disassembled it.  Isn't it beautiful?


Before I got real involved in that project, I just finished up a few bears:  Theodore, a 12" mohair bear, Calvin, a 6" old fashioned style bear and I gave Dandy a little cosmetic surgery ;)  These 3 guys are on the Available Page.  Have a great weekend!





4 New Patchwork Pocket Bears!

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Hi!

I'm sure you thought I was hibernating or something.  But I wasn't - honestly! ;)  I should have been posting some "in progress" photos, but I was just really on a roll and working on bears.  I'm hoping to try to post more "in progress" stuff and studio stuff soon.

But for now, I'd like to introduce you to the 4 little ones who were keeping me so busy!  I had a lot of fun creating these little guys and I hope you enjoy meeting them.  If you are interested in adopting one - they are on my Available Page.



A New Bear & Bunny on the Website

Thursday, April 16, 2015

I can't believe I forgot to post these two little ones on my blog!  
Lil Bean and Penny are looking for new homes.  
Lil Bean is the little brother to Jelly Bean - 
a little 6 1/2" white bear with jelly bean fabric, 
and Penny is an 8" Pocket Bunny.  
They are both available on eBay here.  
I hope you enjoy meeting them!





On the Worktable Today....

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

So I'm supposed to be working on puppies and kitties 
for next week's online Pet Palooza show, 
but I'm really in the mood to do a Patchwork Pocket Bear.  
So I've given in and here's what's on my table today.  
I find it's usually best to give in and work on what I'm in the mood to work on... 
or I'll get nothing done LOL!  Stay tuned for the finished bear!

Another Bear has been Born!

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Wow, another snowy day here in Kentucky!  I moved here from Chicago to get away from all of that LOL!

Well at least it's a good day to work on teddy bears - and I've got another bear ready for you to meet!
Here is Corky - a 7" one of a kind faux fur teddy bear.  He is currently the "Available" page of the website.  I hope he makes you smile...
