Taking a Break

I've really enjoyed half-term week.  It has given me the opportunity to try making bears that are totally different to my normal bears.  I have had a lot of fun with them.

I bought some mohair from South Africa a while back.  I decided to dye it in pastel colours, then couldn't decide what to do with it.  I thought I would try some happy looking bears as follows:

Happiness is...

I have always loved old, traditional style bears but not had the nerve to age a bear I've made. I was determined to have a go,so...I have plucked and sanded the mohair on bear below.


  1. I love them all!! You certainly have a knack, even in other styles than your usual! Bravo!

  2. Your bears looks so happy! They are all so beautiful =)

  3. Love them all, what fun to just play with new things for a while :o)
