A hug...of bears

I finished the bears today and they are already in their new home. These little guys are 15" tall and come from a pattern by Hemer House Designs - pattern name is 'Tiffany'. I like the lambs wool one the best...there's just something about her personality.

Now for a bit of trivia...do you know what a group of teddy bears is called? The title of this post will tell you!

    As my 11 yr old grandson says "Sweet" as in Excellent! I particularly like the soles of the feet on the brown bear.

  5. I love T-bears, as I call them, and this pair you made are about the cutest ones I've ever seen! I have several old mink stoles (from deceased relatives) that I want to make bears out of. Have patterns - am just afraid to do the cotter pins. Are joints easy to learn? Did you have a teacher or did you just jump in? Congrats on creating such lovely creatures! Hugs, Cathy
