Teddy Bears Picnic

Taking the bears on a picnic today. Not really, just an outing! There is an expo/craft fair locally today and in a weak moment I thought sure, why not? So the 'spec' bears may find a new den to go to. These are ones I made just for fun. One of my own bears will go along to chaperone and show off just what you can do with a loved one's clothing. This is my Herb bear, made from my Dad's western shirt and jeans [his favorite clothing style].
Dumb Dora will attend as well ~ my headless dress form, clothed in a garment from Oh My Gaudy . An assortment of primitive and rustic frames, note cards, kid kits, books etc from the Homestead Store will be there, signature t's from Oh My Gaudy, and lots of advertising handouts.
Tomorrow it will be back to making bears!

What a trip!!

Mama Bear is back....but been busy with bears [of course]. Several very patient customers were waiting my return, with their orders already waiting at my house. Coveralls, shirts, cords, bathrobes - I've made bears out of all those in the past two weeks. Plus one pet bed. Bears out of clothing make really special memories for folks.
I'll put in a photo or two later, but right now, I've bears to wrap!
