I thought I'd play along with Melody's Teddy bears picnic and show you some of the bears that I have in my collection, most of which are made by me.
It is fitting to start with Harriette as she is the first mohair bear that I made.
Completed in a class in 2001 and I even kept up with all the homework so she was finished by the end of the last class and like all good crafty types I picked up supplies on the last day and began an obsession with making bears.
As I handsewed all the body parts the bears became my train project and were completed quickly and very unlike me I worked on one at a time, which is why I only have one bear UFO.
I have plenty of supplies for making more furry friends.
