Hello TeddyTalk!

I am so pleased to have found a this forum. Such a wonderful resource in the library!

I make bears as a hobby, otherwise I'm a doctoral student (anthropology) and I paint portraits to keep the pot bubbling.
I'm getting better at this bearmaking thing

I attach some recent bears below.

The first one I made is the Big Bear (40 cms tall when standing), followed by Bree, then Cory, then Caelynne the buny. I am definitely getting better!
I discovered shading somewhere between Cory and Caelynne Bun, and it's been a lot of fun.

Next thing to do is to learn to take better pictures of them :P

They're all jointed, poseable, and you can undress Bree. I delight in making them able to stand on their own bear_original


Right now I'm working on another bunny, this time for a friend who wants to buy it. It has toes! Adorable little feetsies.

Thanks all for the warm welcome :)

I find the sewing, especially when I do it all by hand, is a very, very nice break from everything else. An added bonus that (except for some fiddly bits) I can generally chat with my family while doing it.

I find it hard to sit still, I'm sure many can relate!
