Bear being born...!

Hello everyone :)

Just an update on my current bear. Well, my intention was to alter a pattern drastically and sell it as one of my own Keli-B Bears but I was worried about copyright. I didnt want to sell the bear as my own for it to resemble the original pattern as this isnt fair to the original artist. Soooo...I jumped in the deep end and have completely designed my own bear. I used the patterns I have as guides to the size of each body bit and so far all is going well :)

The legs and foot pads are sewn in and I have started on the head. I will get the rest finished tomorrow but I have to wait to do the body because I am waiting for my first batch of tush tags to arrive! Ill get pics up of them when they arrive. Also waiting for the swing tags to come as well, nervous about those too!!!

I will get a picture of the bears head up as I am going along so you can see the progression which will be nice. More updates will follow soon.

In the rest of the bear world, I attended a Kaycee bear signing event in Loughborough this weekend. It was fantastic and I came home with a beautiful pink bunny called Blossom (pictured!). I then went over to Trentham with two friends and we walked around the shopping village to find a food outlet to host the Charlie Bear gathering in April. We have now settled on the Premier Inn on site so that will be sorted soon!

It is almost February, so it will be time for Charlie Bears on QVC on the 14th...and then...HUGGLETS!

Taking the next step!

I am taking the next step in my bear making! I am using the same pattern as my pink bear (now named Muffy) but am altering it drastically. Arms, body, face, ears...possibly the legs! So watch this space for my first Keli-B Bear!!! Just need to wait ever so patiently for the materials to arrive...

Little unamed bear


Here is my latest bear. She doesnt have a name but I was thinking perhaps Ella. She is made from a pattern from Christie Bears and she is absolutely adorable! Im really pleased with her technically and I now feel confident to start altering patterns so my next bear will be based on this pattern :)

The start of 2011 is very busy for me in the bear world. I am off to a Kaycee Bear signing event next weekend where I will purchase Blossom - a pink rabbit! After that I am off to Trentham and One More Bear the bear shop to start sorting out the food place for our Charlie Bear Gathering Event. In February, it is QVC for Charlie bears, the launch of their new collection and then I am off to Hugglets at the end of February. Busy busy busy! And expensive!!!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my newest bear :)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

It is now 2011 which means lots of time for bear making...well, not at the moment. I've just moved out of my parents and into a flat with my boyfriend - but my bear making bits and bobs are still at home :( I will collect them next week however and hopefully I will have my pink bear finished soon!

So watch this space!
