years ago, I made mohair bears,-most were sold. and at christmas time, they gathered under the tree. so, when I came across some old pictures, I thought I’d show a few today.
sadie, (yes, they all had names), was the first mohair bear I made. she had a christening gown on with a sweater and lace collar.
here’s a pic of one of the trees—I think 1992. funny, I loved pink then, too:)
olive had a mini quilt that I made for her.
brody, was in my son’s room.
mohair was and is expensive, so, my very first bear, hadley, was sewn from plain old sherpa fleece from jo-anns. I made her a dress and a baby doll to hold.
it’s hard to believe, but, these 4 bears are all from the same pattern. you get different looks with the fur color and length, the size of eyes and noses, and how you shape the faces.
I have a few in my attic, collecting dust. hmm, maybe its time to bring them down…
