This week's bears are here...

This week I was inspired to do a bear with Patriotic Spirit...Meet Patriotic Pete! I had been thinking of Memorial Day, Flag day coming up, and then of course the 4th of July. Pete is hand sewn with wool felt and has a "flag" incorporated in his little body. His arms and legs are made of paper clay, scraps of book pages, and an acrylic wash. I really enjoy making these Vintage Style of bears with paper clay limbs. I'm also working on a rabbit...check for photos in a couple of days.

Lil' Dreamer is my latest crochet mini in my Chibi Crochet Bear Series. He is a 2.5 inch beary made of acrylic thread in a gorgeous deep wine red color. He carries his Dream Wand with him.

And finally a little light lilac color bear made from vintage rayon fabric and hand the little Lea Liu flower bear. With her little flower halo she seems to attract a silver color butterfly (charm).

You can find each of these little ones at: Enjoy!

Hi Calvina

Gosh, I love your blog, and your latest bears are so cute! I could have sworn that Lea Liu was a felted bear, what a neat fabric. I just love her little face, so sweet.

Anyway, I was just surfing around everyones blogs as I tidy up mine! Hope you have a happy and productive week!
