I've always loved bears but when my aunt brought home a teddy bear magazine when I was in my 20's and I saw the artist bears, I knew I wanted to make them too. I made some with faux fur then later with mohair (not many though.) I sold a couple and gave the rest to family and friends. I haven't made any in a long time. My boyfriend recently suggested that I start making them again so that's how I found this site! I'm interested in making mini bears and I want to learn all I can. Years ago I bought an artist mini bear and I take him with me everywhere and he is the inspiration to make minis. I'm excited to get started! Thanks for reading!
