Leon - finished after sneak preview

A new bearkidz-baby is born. Leon is about 12" tall and one of a kind. He might look like he is made from mohair, but he is not. As all my bearkidz he is crocheted from a variety of different yarns without the use of any pattern. This newest bearkidz-family member will be up for adoption soon on my website. If you like to inquire about him, please send me an email.

sneak preview

I am back home and crocheting my newest bearkidz family member. I am inviting you to a sneak preview. The head of my bear is not done yet, eyes and ears are just attached losely with pins. I still need to determine where I would like them placed. The nose hasn't been waxed or sealed yet and also no shading has been applied. But isn't it amazing how ears and their placement change the expression of the bear?

At the moment I am out of town again but not without my crochet hook, knitting needles and some yarn. This time I have been working on a dress for a future bearkidz bear. I am sure there will be one that will look perfect and "beary" fine in this dress.
At home I have started to work on a new bear and I can't wait to get back to keep working. The first part I always finish is the bears' head. I will show a picture of him/her? as soon as my creation is ready. I always need to wait until a finished bear looks at me and only then I can tell if it is a she or a he. Once my new bear has a name, he or she will be happy to meet you!

A new bearkidz baby is born. Her name is Amy. She is one-of-a-kind and about 10"(25 cm)tall. Amy is crocheted from an eyelash yarn in combination with a very thin strand of yarn with soft and whispy "lashes".
Her paw pads are made from a microfiber fabric. I also knitted a dress with a little ballerina button in front that matches the paw pads in color. A braided hair band rounds up her outfit. Amy will be available on my website soon.
