It's 2 things that have made me start this project today. #1 I have empty nest syndrome. All my stuffed animals have found homes (black squirrel, pug, huggable lamb and pink bear). #2 the Doll & Teddy Bear, Artist & Collector Convention on May 12-14, 2011 at the Ramada Airport Hotel in Philadelphia, PA, right near me!!! I'm so excited! 2 of the bear artists whose blogs I follow will be there, Desertmountainbear and Murphy Bears. (in my blog list)
Yes, I'm still working in plush felt(affordable and easy to work with for the beginner). But this is my own pattern that I'm still evolving. Can't chance the good stuff yet but I'm moving forward.
You may notice that I intend to experiment with brown and cream accents. I suppose you can guess what it will be.
