Hi!  bear_flower I was just wondering if any one is up for a Valentine Challenge pin swap Bear. bear_wub  I just finished a little pin bear for a swap friend. It could be made into a pin or necklace.or maybe just earrings. Something small. I think it would be wonderful to recieve a Valentine Pin Bear from around the world. Let me know what you all think  bear_grin  :hug:  Mary

It sounds like a good idea, Mary, but I'm afraid that my big bears would look pretty crazy as jewelry!

I hope you get some takers so that I can see some photos.  bear_original

Sounds like it could be fun - can we request what sort of thing we'd like?  I'd not wear a pin or earrings/necklace, but a wee keychain charm would be really sweet, and I could pop him/her up on my desk at work

Hi everyone  bear_flower I am glad to know you are interested.All of your bears are awsome!
We can make anything we want as long as it represents Valentine
Use your imagination and it will guild you until its complete.
A hint toward making your little Valentine Bear :

Main body is a heart,attaching head on top and ears, then side arms and legs. It can be all needle felted,in short pile mohair,combined with material.Beads any way you wish to make it. And dressed as you wish with any accessories. Simple isn' it. Here is an example of a little doll I made

sure, a small swap would be fun.  I'm assuming this is like the Christmas ornament swap?  (it's just on scrapbook sites, swaps mean making things for everyone involved!)

I have a suggestion, why don't you put of GENERAL and make it an early spring swap.
