Years ago I made bears all the time and as much as I liked the end result, I hated working with fur. Every time I made a bear it looked like a cat exploded in my studio. I was over the bear making for quite some time. I have now decided to make a few again and dress them in the vintage doll dresses I bought, but I am not going to use fur. No more picking it out of the seams for me. I am going to use other fabrics and see what happens. I want them to look worn, torn and well loved. I thought I would use warm and natural cotton quilt batting, or maybe old feed sacks I have.
I will be back next week with a tutorial on how I made the bear, unless it come out really bad. LOL
Until then I made a pintrest board for some inspiration.
Take a look and I will talk with you next week.
