Hello, everyone! bear_grin Wow, there are so many amazing pieces from everyone on TT ~ I'm blown away!

I've recently completed a new crochet bear design. Her name is Sorda, and if you'd like to make her, the pattern is available for free right *here*.

I hope you like her!

Thank you so much  bear_laugh He was really good practice

Zhennijen

bear_innocent  Thank you, Brigita. She was a joy to make  bear_wub

Zhennijen

Oh wow!  bear_shocked  She's so adorable, I could just gobble her up!!!  bear_wub  bear_wub
I love how you've made her eyes so round and hypnotizing - she sure to grab someone's attention  bear_rolleyes

Zhennijen

Wow, this is pretty creative! I love how you've decorated your kittens, they look ready to rock  bear_thumb

Zhennijen

Hi again, everyone!  bear_laugh

Luyi is Diyi's brother, and they're both made from the same pattern! (created by awesome bear artist Lorraine Almond of "Almond Bears")

I had a blast making this little guy. If you'd like to see more details, please visit Luyi's page on my blog bear_tongue

Hi everyone! I'd finally like to introduce you all to Diyi (pronounced dee-ee). Her name means "first" in Chinese.
She's my little sweetie, and I'm really proud of how she turned out bear_innocent

If you'd like any more details, please visit Diyi's page on my blog.

bear_shocked Pixie bears.... bear_shocked bear_shocked  I KNEW they were real!!!

I love your little Bodmin!  bear_wub He looks like such a sweetie. And that "Down the Woods" piece is fabulous, especially those mushrooms!

Zhennijen

Haha, well my first bear's name is "Diyi" (dee-ee), which means "first" in Chinese (how creative, I know bear_rolleyes ). I was hoping to name my second bear something similar-sounding (since they're both from the same pattern), and it just so happens that Louis is written as "Luyi" in Chinese pinyin (loo-ee).

So now I have a name! *Sniff* bear_cry It's perfect  bear_happy

Zhennijen

Hmm...   bear_rolleyes You've just given me an idea for a new name

Zhennijen

So happy to hear you like them, Pink ^_^ I wish I had more supplies to make more!
Wow, I love the bears you've made with needle felted details - especially Anastasia (what an adorable bear! bear_wub ). I never would have thought to needle felt clothes etc onto the bear before! Such an awesome idea~

Zhennijen

bear_tongue  Aww, thanks Jenbee. I was so unsure about working with tipped fur on such a small bear (it curves too sharply and exposes the backing), but I think he turned out okay. Next time I'll try the same length on a bigger bear.

Oooo, I just found your bears on Facebook through your website. They are adorable!! bear_wub

Zhennijen

Thanks so much, Peterbear  bear_happy I'm still really new to making bears and it's really nice to hear other people's compliments.
Now! Off to find that head.....  bear_rolleyes

Zhennijen

Thank you, Michelle. Haha, yes...  bear_noexpression Here's hoping he survives having his head swatted around by that mischievous girl.

Btw, just finished looking at your bears on Facebook. They are stunning! I especially love your colourful sibling collection  bear_flower It's so much fun making different bears from the same pattern, there's so much room for creativity!

Zhennijen

Wowww!! Perfecto!!  bear_thumb Such a huge difference - definitely stick with these  bear_smile

Zhennijen

I'm so thrilled to have almost finished my second bear! It's taking longer than I would have liked, and I'm still learning so much about what order to do things in (eg, sealing the nose should be done AFTER needle felting the muzzle, haha)

My first bear, Diyi, just couldn't wait any longer, and she started playing with the new bear as soon as my back was turned  bear_tongue They look so cute together, I didn't have the heart to separate them just yet  bear_wub

I adore chihuahuas, they have huge personalities inside such a tiny package. bear_happy Your little Aero is no exception! He looks both cute and mischievous. Well done on making such a tiny little cutie!  bear_laugh

Zhennijen

bear_shocked Oh my gosh! This is new? She looks beautifully worn and well-loved - such a treasure!

Zhennijen

bear_happy  Yes, it's a photo of a real dog. I find using real animals for inspiration always helps me with my proportions.

Let us know how you go with your head and eyes. I'd love to see the final result!

Zhennijen

Hello, Veronika, welcome to Teddy Talk bear_happy Your crocheted bears are stunning!  bear_innocent
I agree, don't worry if you feel your English isn't perfect. Your teddy bears have already captured my heart without saying a word  bear_wub

Zhennijen

~ Now THAT'S what I call egg-cited  bear_cool

Zhennijen

My, what big eyes you have!  bear_tongue  Heehee, 12mm eyes might be a better fit, but it really depends on the look you're going for.
There is one thing you could try -- trying spacing the eyes a little further apart like in the photo below (do this after you're finished stuffing). This might balance the features out a bit better, but if it still looks "odd", then downsizing to the 12mm is your next best bet.

Keep at it! Today my poor bear had his eyes and nose ripped out twice and his chin replaced. So cruel, but at least he ended up looking cuter  bear_whistle

Zhennijen

Stunning! I really love how you've made and positioned the eyes. The details to his face are simple yet so well done. All he needs now is a big kiss on his cheek from his loving new owner. Yup, he's a cutie!  bear_grin
