I have completed my first bear! This little mini bear is probably the most imperfect creature ever made but he was made with such tender loving care and such patience! He looks nothing like the picture on the kit. Well now I have experienced some of the pitfalls of mini bear making and the most difficult aspects are the attachment of the ears and the footpads. I also learnt that with these tiny creations, every stitch counts and if one stitch is out of place it can change the shape of that particular part of the bear
Instead of being disheartened by the difficulties, I am so fired up to try another bear. So I am rushing off to the Post Office to collect my next kit.
I am totally in awe of all the bear artists throughout the world.
