First bears of 2018
After taking a short break for the holidays, I was eager to begin designing a new selection of bears for my first show in 2018.
Since the Winter Stars Online Bear Show is in February, I themed some of my creations around Valentine's Day.
Some bears were inspired by my two weeks of intensive crocheting during my holiday break. I crocheted darling little hats and bolero jackets for some lucky bears to wear.
Other bears were adorned with my new hobby, making wool felt flowers. I signed up for an online class to learn the techniques to make the wool felt flowers. I dove head first into making little roses, daisies and even wool felt succulents. It wasn't long before my new hobby spilled into my love of bear making. My showpiece for the Winter Stars show wears a floral swag of my first flowers!
Without further ado, let me introduce my first bears of 2018.
Serenade, 2018 Winter Stars Showpiece
Amabel, The Mardi Gras Queen
All of these bears were adopted and found new homes at the show.
Thank you so much to those that chose one of my creations to add to their bear collection.
