I've not posted for a while as migraines have hampered my creativity but today the sun is shining and my mojo seems to be back so what better thing to do but get out the mohair and faux furs to plan bears for Woburn in June. Here's a selection of the natural realistic ones I have.
This is a new bear design in the making; his taken a whole metre of Schulte alpaca fur and is super soft. It's my first bear with claws and I've experimented with a more realistic paw; 1 down just 3 to go!
With just a few weeks to go until the Hugglets Winter Bearfest there is fur and fluff flying everywhere in my workshop while I get bears ready for the big event. Be sure to come and visit us in Hall 4 (upstairs) on stand 134. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with the latest makes www.facebook.com/montonbears
I received a lovely email from a free lance writer today named Bryony Harrison. She wrote a lovely piece about last September's Hugglets and even mentioned me and the Monton Bears! Here's the link so you can read it too.
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas here in the Monton workshop; there's a couple more days of designing and experimenting I should be able to squeeze in before the children break up from school. Hugglets is just around the corner and I cant wait to introduce some new bears.
