something different in between the bears


i took a break from bear making
and totally forgot to show you here on my blog what i was up to … sorry
so i give you now all in 1 big post.
the next bear is in the making


first i made a dress with 1mm needles for my lovely tiny doll, the dress with the hat took me about 12 hours,
one wouldn't imagine how long it takes to knit such small stuff …


then i tried myself on some of those pretty ornamental hearts
the pink one a first test about size and proportions


the off-white is then the 2nd, its made of silk and got beads stitched on all over


and then i spent a night to sew some hats for my buddy .. the blue one i grabbed the wrong pattern size sadly



and i finished the 2nd square for my summer top
it is blocked right now, and gets an edging on the top


then i did some felted animals too

013 - Kopiedragon


oh and i finished Roberto
i must admit, old style teddy's will never be a big favourite to make
