This bear was also in progress while I was working on the piece from my last post. I had a bit of a panic for a moment when I thought an ear had gone missing. Luckily it turned up. I mean I’ve seen bears with only one ear – maybe even on purpose but this one told me in no uncertain terms that she was not about to go around with only one ear.
I found the fabric for her top way back in January at The Quilter’s Market. I think it came from Japan and you can see how long it has taken me to get around to making it up. I still have some left and may yet think of another way I can use it.
Her feet peek out from her trousers which are made from another favorite cotton print. I guess I’ll always love fabrics whether they are meant for making bears or for making bear clothing.
I do really like bare bears where you can see and touch their fur. I also think that occasionally they like to put on clothes. How do I know this? They tell me, of course.
