This seems to be the right time of year for planning out my bear making for the next 12 months. This year it is my intention to continue working towards a more realistic shape and incorporate more movement into my bears. I am happy working with locline now, and encouraged by the range of movement this allows, but my patterns are still 'work in progress'.
I find myself torn between designing bears with more realistic features, or kinder, teddy faces. Below is a photo of Icicle. I have gone for the more realistic facial features with him.
I also intend to continue developing my teddies this year, as well. I just can't resist those 'please love me' teddy bear eyes!
Happy New Year!
