I have been drawing up a few new things— and this week managed to squeeze some sewing time up for a little trial run.
I am kind of a conservative sewer sometimes… i get stuck on – this is a bear. she should be brown. so i used brown swirly fabric. not that this is bad or anything….but i think that having striped stockings on her legs would have been totally cute.
She has cute little Mary Jane black felt shoes…. to go along with her tutu….which is a bunch of gathering!
She of course must have a little bow in her ear and button hinge arms. I love how they move. She isn't too much of a play doll, though. I do love how simple she is. Depending on my time i might be making some more Tutu Bears up for Art Market this weekend.
I do have to say that i need to look into how to finish the arm at the top — i just fold it inside and then iron it. maybe i need to do a few stitches there. or make it a finished end and turn the arm inside out somewhere else….thing i need to learn still! Anyone have any suggestions? or links for great tutorials with this sort of technique?
this bear is styled after Nooshka on Esty. See here.
