Pocket Lining Bears

I made these two fellas using pocket linings for their bodies and old leather buttons for their limb joints. I'm not sure about the ears and their eyes make them look a bit alien like - even so I welcome them to the fold!

More Work in Progress

Ahead Of The Game

Off with their heads! Well they actually haven't had their heads put on as yet, but I'm getting there. I'm working on a middle sized jointed bear - my family were freaked out by the last 'Teddy Long Legs' bears that I made - Pah!

I love this little cushion one of our daughters made for the doll's house. The doll's house had to be dismantled to make way for their teenager's room. I held on to this little gem and use it for my pins.

Paws For Thought

Here's the latest of my bear creations, he's fully jointed, he can do the splits and yes even his head can do a complete twirl - what skills!

Looks Familiar?

I've started joining together my waistband collection, not quite sure what to do with them yet, but I'll let you know when I do!

Rolls and Blocks

I joined denim scraps/ hems/seams together to make these rolls of denim, preparation for creating some patchwork.

I've started making log-cabin style patchwork blocks, this is the first - just a few more to go and I'll have a throw or quilt!
