Little Bears and Dogs from scraps

The last couple of weeks I decided I needed to use up most of my mohair stash before I ordered more. These 3 bears are from small pieces that were left over. Andy Panda is already on his way to a new home. The other two, Summer and Lola, will be available on Bear Pile . I also made a tiny string jointed dog. The plan is to make several of them before the Greater Orlando Doll Show on May 5th. The little dogs are the perfect pet for Barbie. As for the plan to use up my mohair stash before ordering more.....fail. Put in an order yesterday.

Bebe has new shoes...

Shoes for bears have been on my mind. Wanting to make shoes for upcoming creations, I decided to make some for a bear that is still waiting to be adopted. Bebe looked like she could use some booties. I used a Simplicity pattern for felt baby shoes as a guideline. Pulling out some craft felt to experiment with, it took several tries. Now Bebe has some yellow felt booties. Now, to translate the pattern to some smaller feet as the new creations will not be as big as Bebe. I also have to update the photos of her on Bear Pile.
