My Etsy Shop

If you go down to the woods today…

I’ve taken the plunge, and I’m joining in with October FolkFest over at Folksy (where you try and list one item every day for October) to fill up my Folksy Shop.  I should think I’ll be doing a blog post later about some of the great stuff that’s being listed, but for today I’m writing about the reason I fell down on this challenge on only the third day!

Mum makes wonderful mohair teddy bears (and if you’ve not seen them yet click here), and each year two ladies come up for the weekend to take a course with her.  This year I decided to tag along for the second day, get on with my beading and catch up with the gossip.  Had a lovely day, but we didn’t finish until quite late so I never got around to posting my Folksy item for the day…

And here they are with their finished bears.  The bear with the green nose on the left was made by Anita (at the back, on the right), the panda was made by Yvonne (back, left) and the yellow bear was made by Mum out of some hand-dyed mohair from Barbara-Ann Bears.   You wouldn’t think it to look at them, but these bears were all made from the same pattern – it just goes to show what a difference the furs and slight differences in technique make!

I love bears but not as much as kittens and how about you make some purely of beads? A brooch would be very nice.
