My New Project!

For the past year I've been itching to try my hand at teddy bear making.  This month I am finally giving it a go.  I purchased some mohair and some supplies online and they all trickled in over the last few weeks.   I made my first bear yesterday...sadly I can not share a picture of it with you.  "Why?" You ask!!?  Because, I am too embarrassed to show just how ugly it turned out, LOL!  I had to go back to the drawing board and revise my first design.  And I must say the second one is turning out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.;)  I ran out of time tonight to continue working on the rest of her but   here is a picture of her little face so far!
I can see how addicting teddy bear making can be!  I can't wait to start making a whole menagerie of cute animals!  Practice makes perfect! ;)


  1. That is one incredibly adorable bear! I love it! I made my first bear last month also. I love the look of yours, though.

  2. Cute face! I hope you're not using all the expensive mohair for all the practice bears. ;)

  3. Thanks Bybido and Tim! (and yes,...I did make the first one with mohair...I guess it's a keeper! LOL!)
