Bears on bases

Hi all, well I have completed my first bear attached to her base and I am really pleased with it. I have had good feedback, and some people have said that a square base would work better, I agree, so I can do either, square or oval. Square would sit better on a shelf as someone stated, which is very true.

Here she is.

She is sitting on a plywood base, painted pale pink with wooden letters painted cream.

I can pretty much paint them any colour, but for now I have bought pink, blue and cream as most of the bears I make are a mixture of these colours.

Don't forget you can still order your Dragon Pattern through my website. She is really fun to make and would make a great birthday present or if you are really organised a great Christmas Present too. Or if you are SUPER organised you can buy the pattern, make it and then give it as a present, how special is that?

I so love your bears! I do think it's a shame that you have to have them on bases now, rather than it being an option, they're so well made it's a shame we won't now have the chance to use those lovely leg joints :-)

I so love these bears and I'm saving to get one for my daughter as she's our little miracle and would love to give her something this gorgeous as an heirloom. X

I think they look lovely. The use of bases could also expand the item such as the use of wooden letters for a childs name etc the use of Square or Circle choices could be a personal choice for the clients depending on the space they wish to keep it.

Yours bears and memory bears are beautiful and genius. They will help keep those precious memories alive as our little children grow into big kids - who are never too old for a teddy bear! :)
