Hattie with her little friend Samuel
Well its not been that quiet in the Ellerton household, both Darren and I have been very busy creating new bears and completing shop orders.
I have had a lot of fun with a new large variation of my Urchins called Dolly Doo and Bubbles Boo and Darren has made a small Furgotten elephant called Hattie.
I am in the middle of visiting a past pattern all the way back to 9 years ago, and it is amazing how you can add new techniques and put a new twist on an old friend. This bear will be 19 inches and from a range of bears I called "Arts and Crafts" these bears were a either made from half mohair and half vintage fabrics or completely vintage fabric. These bears were all traditional in style but I have now incorporated the pattern of a bear I used 5 years ago called Sammi Rye, I think I have given the game away! yes this one has a Japanese influence as well as a touch of traditional, looking forward to doing more on this guy a little later on.
Here are a few of the bears completed this week.
If you would like to find out more information on Darren's little elephant called Hattie please take a look at Darren's Blog Furgotton Bears, where you will see a lot more pictures.
Wishing you a great weekend.
