"Bears sleep by day. At night they stay awake to chase away bad dreams."
The process of making her has been amazing. I have enjoyed every hour on her. The biggest challenge has been her face and the placing of the ears as if it is not right the face begins to look like a mouse!
As you can see she has an antique brooch on which is a thistle and as she has turned out to be Scottish her name is Scottish too...
I thought I would give her a Homespun Stitchworks twist and therefore vintage and antique were the order of the day.
bears and I have embroidered her nose in a darker brown antique thread as I felt that black was going to be too stark for her. I hope that this has given you all the nudge you may need to try something new and as you can see you can make a bear your own with any design you decide.
