This is my newest creation.  She is made from mohair w\needle felted facial details.

Thanks all.  I think the reference to Jennifer Laing's book is what I am thinking about.  I guess I am just suffering from a lack of confidence.  I have made many bears and other critters from my own designs, but I think the loss of all of my patterns and books threw me for a loop.  Maybe they were my crutch.

I need a bit of help.  I am trying to remember info pertaining to pattern making.  I know if you are making a bear, the body is a certain size compared to the head.  For example if the head is 2 inches the body would be maybe twice that size.  I had a book that gave all of the dimensions, but I lost all of my books in the fire.  So what I would like to know is either the dimensions or what book gives this info.  I had several books, but I can't remember which it was that gave this info.  Does this make any sense?  bear_wacko

Well the little elephant is winging her way to Hawaii.  I really appreciate your greetings.  I am now working on a rabbit and feeling like things are looking up.  Because I lost most of my bear making supplies in the fire, I am having to move at a slower pace.  I think one of the things I really miss right now is the books I lost.  So if any one has suggestions for books that I should be on the look out for, please let me know.

This is my first creation in quite a while.  This little elephant is about 6" tall.  She is made of mohair with leather foot pads.  She has glass bead eyes.

My elephant is finally finished.  However, I am still working on the photo issue.

Well, my elephant is now in the making.  I am ready to start sewing.

Hello all.  It has been such a long time since I have been on this site.  The past several years have been tough for me.  I had put all of my bear supplies away and just hid away.  I do not like roller coasters, but that is what my life became.  Then to top it off, I had a house fire in March and all of my mohair was lost.  Well, I finally gave in and ordered a bit of mohair.  I just need to make a bear again.  I hope I remember how.  I was very pleased to see many familiar names here.  Hopefully I will not be a stranger any longer.

Hello Terry,

Welcome.  I guess you are just about my neighbor.  I live east of Columbus.  My husband works in Columbus.  I'm sure you will enjoy this site.

I am not in the know with Facebook.  I would like to know more about a page.  Is this the same thing as I hear others talking about friends etc.

millie

Wonderful!  Please tell me more about this paperclay.  I have been wanting to try to make dolls for a while but just don't know where to start.  What is paperclay and where do I find it?

millie

What cuties!  I thank you much for giving them a home.  I'm sure they are thankful, also.  They will return your kindness many times over.

millie

Thank you all very much.  I am sure this little girl will be able to share her troubles with Emmie.

P2230164.JPGIt's been quite a while, but I am finally getting my bear making drive back.  Life can deal an awful hand, and it has for me.  But I also know a little girl who has been dealt a blow by life.  So I have made Emmie for this little girl.  Emmie can't fix the problems in this girl's family, but maybe she can get a bit of comfort from her.

I, too, have been lurking.  It has been an incredibly tough year for me.  It has been 3 years since my daughter's death, and I was told it would get easier.  But this year has not been an easy one.  I have relived all of the fears and nightmares, which made me want to just bury myself under my blankets and stay there.   But I have felt much better lately and have actually made a bear.  It is a very small and simple bear, but it's a bear.  I feel like it is a start.  I will post a pic in the gallery.

I do have a lamb pelt.  It is white.  If you cannot find what you are looking for, I can sell you a piece or the whole pelt.  The problem is the shipping cost from the US to Australia can be pricey.
