Sadly, I am having to limit the number of woolly bears I can make due to arthritis in my hand – so sad!
But as I can still hand sew I have made a return to the bears I used to make many years ago.
It’s a great chance to be creative beyond the possibilities of the knitted bears, taking inspiration from my antique teddy bear collection. It’s great fun “ageing” the bear with careful colour shading, worn bald patches and replicating the look of a well loved old bear!
I can still crochet as you only need one needle for this, so there will still be some woolly bears coming along soon!
Hope you like my new bears.
