Teddies are not out of my system yet. I have a few more to share! The first is a steampunk teddy and his little buddy: This is an adaptation of a wonderful pattern by Monica Spicer.
Next another Monica Spicer pattern, I call him Mulberry and Little Dude: I had fun embroidering the nose with multi-coloured cotton thread.
Finally, my latest favourite, the big dude teddy with the great big nose: I knitted his sweater as a indigenous West Coast design and I both embroidered and waxed his nose. He is quite the big, burly guy at 23" tall. I had to use three different pieces of mohair for him, but he was worth the effort.
Signing off until after Easter when I return from my vacation in Toronto. Enjoy the beginning of Spring and keep on creating!

During the last month I have been making teddy bears! I love making mohair teddies, bunnies and cats and I decided to make some and take a break from art dolls.
