thank you everyone for the giraffe love! it's nice to hear such sweet words and comments when you try something new, especially when you see it all of it's flaws. it makes me want to keep at it and try out some other ideas floating around in my head.
speaking of new, i have just posted this new bear in the shop . i LOVE the fabric on his belly. the colors are soft and muted and yellow is probably one of my favorites. i find these bears fun to make, since i rarely use my sewing machine and all of my other animals are hand stitched.
i consider these bears to be a limited edition since the grey wool suiting i have is such a small quantity and i can't get any more of it. i have enough for maybe 15 bears? maybe? we'll see. it's too bad because i like working with it, but now it will be fun searching for replacement wool. let the hunt begin. (i wish we had more fabric shops in vancouver.)
