Bare Bear

Over the past year my Etsy shop has been a bit neglected.  It used to have lots of little felt mascots and toys, which sold well and I had fun making them.  With the amount of other work I have had recently, there hasn't been much time for sewing - and that's a shame. 

So this week, while I have had some free afternoons for a change, I have made a start on a little project that's been in the back of my mind for a few weeks ever since I got the exciting bundle of remnant fabrics from Taiwan.  I want to make some tiny bears and give them pretty dresses to wear.  The first one is in white and she is still naked, although her limb joints are adorned with some tiny flower buttons. 

I've also just received a big bundle of felt in all sorts of wonderful colours that you just don't see in craft shops (not in our neck of the woods anyway) so there is no excuse not to squeeze in a bit of sewing here and there.
On the's a duck.  Of course it is.
