Here is my newest creation to my little bear hug. He is an unusually coloured orange guy made from a vintage rayon that I purchased from the USA. I love sewing the mini bears in vintage rayon because, if you look close you will see that there is virtually no pile to the fabric, and it is always a challenge for me to create a bear from rayon with no visible stitches. (Sewing with mohair, or similar plush fabrics, always helps to hide the stitches!).
Anyway, his name is Everard - an unusual name I know, but he was named by one of the ladies in the teddy making group that I go to. If you are as old as me and can remember the Larry Grayson show (UK 1970's) then you will remember Everard. Enough said!
It's always pleasing when a bear will stand up on his own too ......
...... but he'd much rather have a little bear hug!
Thanks for popping by .... there's a little panda in the sewing bag now!
Visit again soon!!
