A little sneak peek!

Here's a little something I've been working on.....a line of 6 inch bears I'm calling Storybook Bears because they look like little bears one might see in old storybooks. This pretty little girl is the prototype. She has a very round tummy that pushes the flounce of her skirt up in the most endearing way. She's also a bit pidgeon toed which makes standing all by herself really easy. I'm still pondering whether these bears will have airbrushed details or not. At this moment, I'm leaning towards sweet simplicity.

My Storybook Bears won't be available until sometime in May. I'm hoping to find a source for those darling little shoes! Those she's wearing are a pair of my vintage doll shoes. If I can't find a source, I suppose I'll have to make a pattern for shoes too! Let's see, I've made the bear pattern, the dress pattern, the hat pattern and now quite possibly a shoe pattern!!! How hard can a shoe pattern be? I may just regret having asked that question!! Ha!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

She is just adorable! I bet you could make some really cute shoes because like you said, you've already made patterns for the rest of the outfit not to mention the bear!

She is just darling! I LOVE her pigeon toes, and that hat sits so perfectly on her. Gorgeous work!

She is the sweetest little thing. I cannot wait until May when available. I wish I could come to Oregon and be trained by you.
