Boy, I'm getting a lot of bears finished for the Tampa show. This sweet little bear is Lysbet and her dog is Bitsy. I love the retro look of the dots on her dress and ribbon. Bitsy needs a collar but I can't decide what kind. I might glue some small rhinestones on ribbon.
It's also a lot of fun thinking up names. Now, after going through my baby name and pet name books I have a list of names that I think go together.
The curly matted mohair is just right for this series and a box of mohair arrived yesterday. More bears to come.
