Head to Toe

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.

  1. hat a cute expression! I love the fur. Most of my bears are bare, except for a bow or lace collar. Sometimes I put a vintage baby dress on one -- if it's a girl!

    1. Hi Linda,

      Thanks very much and I like the fur too. It seemed to be just the choice for these clothes or maybe the other way around!

    1. Hi Lynda,

      Thank you very much! I appreciate your comment. As for making bear clothes, it can be fiddly. I admire those miniature bear artists who make the itsy bitsy tiny ones. How do they do it????

  3. Oh the very idea of her only having one ear, she's not Van Gogh you know! LT is wondering aloud how much of a loser it makes her that she can recognise those fabric lines for the clothes too... we say a bit one ;o)

    1. Hi Katy,

      You know I don't know what I'm thinking these days. Must be a bit off because the Van Gogh thing never occured to me! Loser? Loser? Oh, you! You must think of yourself in these terms: "I am a fabric guru! Ask me anything. Anything at all. I know all the fabric lines!" See?

  5. Perfect outfit for this very sweet bear. You are right Ginger, they do tell. Bears are never to timid to speak their mind.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Oh, good! I am glad you've got me straightened out. Yeah, the ear thing did work out in the end - thankfully for both of us!

      Thanks Sharon!

  7. A bear needs two ears. "The better to hear you with, my child."

    Oh wait I think that was the big bad wolf. :-)

    Love her face and the color of her fur. Do you think her clothes help to tell her personality.... hummmm...

    1. Hi Bonnie,

      Oh my - I had forgotten about the big bad wolf! Ha ha! Thank you so much for your comment. You may be on to something - do the clothes make the bear or the bear make the clothes? :)

    1. Hi Kay Joy,

      Thanks very much for your compliment. There really wasn't much of a deciding factor on that fabric - saw it and knew I'd regret not getting it so I avoided the whole arguing with self thing and bought it!
