Pink elephants

No I haven't imbibed too much.... this little pink elephant is called Belle and she resides in a pink cocktail glass ( tho' it's plastic!).
Belle is helping me in my break away from mice... she is a 5 inches tall, made from scraggy mohair with Ultrasuede paw pads and inner ears.

Brownie... a respite from mice!

It was a week full of mice... mice in martini glasses munching on olives! So as a respite I pulled out some bear brown roving and made Brownie. Brownie is 6 inches tall from ear tip to sole bottom. He's string jointed and has black onyx bead eyes...
Brownie's arms are bent... the better to hold something, but I don't know what, yet!

Lucy is a treasury

Lucy has been stomping grapes ala the "I Love Lucy" episode ! I did it once as a kid and ended up with purple feet forever! Little Lucy is purple all over!
Lucy was snagged for an etsy treasury!

Wiley's been in the martini !

All that is left are the olives! And it looks like he's ready to eat those too!
Wiley was made from alpaca fiber and pink wool roving with horsehair whiskers. ( What am I going to do when I run out of Loretta's horsehair?) This is my first try at felting alpaca ...and it felts differently. But I have loads, so I will have to learn!
ps... Wiley is up on BearPile and etsy.

Wiley is headed for Garland, TX.

needle felted muzzles...

My newest, Kerry, has a needle felted muzzle. If I am truthful, I will tell you my new pattern didn't quite come up to snuff. So I improvised.
Kerry was made from some of Alison McKee's wonderful pale pink mohair. It's lightly distressed. Kerry is 8inches tall and weighted with a little steel shot...

a new dress

I have been intrigued with pillowcase dresses for my grand daughter Lili and have made her several. I decided to try one for a bear...and here it is on Daria.

Daria is off to Prince Edward Island, Canada
