Wow, what a rainy week we have had, in fact they have said it is the wettest April since 2000...although I don think they hype these things up a bit.
In the world of bears however, I am plodding along very nicely. I have had lots of orders in the past few weeks, especially for bears for weddings.
I have just finished making two very special bears to actually be included in the wedding itself! They will go down the aisle with the bridesmaid and pageboy. I was really excited to get started. The bride wanted Purple, Blue, Cream and Grey. Here are the finished bears.
They are made using the same fabrics but I have cut them out differently so they each are individual.
I also hand embroidered the date of the wedding onto the foot of each bear. I am really pleased with how the embroidery came out. As I still have quite a basic sewing machine, I cannot do all of the fancy wording that some people can do, although I think this adds character to them.
Anyway, on with the wet, rainy Saturday!
