A New Bear

Well, these hands haven't idle the last few weeks!

I've been keeping very busy with a bunch of shows coming up, but have squeezed in a new bear ... introducing Monte Carlo ... a soft and cuddly bundle of teddy love in a fantastic new tri-coloured long pile mohair I just bought especially for this bear.

Hope you like his trapunto paws ... they were a new challenge for me, as I hadn't done trapunto on mohair pads before (only on ultrasuede previously) and it was a different style of toe, but I really enjoyed making them, and will probably make a few more bears with paddy paws just like this. I think I like them so much as they remind me of the fur between our late Monty's toes (aaahh, beautiful memories ...)


  1. His paws are absolutely lovely! I haven't tried this at all and I am in awe of the people who can do it!!!!

  2. He looks wonderful and love those paws!

  3. Oh he's a cutie Marg ... love his little tootsies!
