One down .....

Well, I'm a little embarrassed to be featuring this little ted on my blog today ... but he's all I've got! I set myself the task of completing five little teddies this week, at my leisure! This is the first complete one and there's four more stuffed ones ready to have features embroidered. Hardly ground-breaking design, as I've been making them for quite some time. I hand-stitched a little felt heart onto these ones - Aaaawww! They'll hopefully make it to my Etsy shop.

I've been frantically designing and photographing my work for the last two years now, so playing catch-up on my blog is a bit of a pointless activity - it would take weeks of posting previous designs, inspirations, etc. I hope my best work isn't behind me!! Anyway, I find these little fellows quite relaxing to make and once they're sewn and stuffed, they're like a blank little canvas waiting to be embellished! They were a realistic target for this week.

Here's some nice pics of sea and sand (in the Hebrides!)to pass the time until I get back to full-time crafting!

Cheerio an drasda!

He is cute! Or is it a girl because it's pink? I have a pink ted from when I was little but he is definitely a boy!

Aw, what a cutie. It looks like a very enjoyable project. I just completed a tiny felt bear to go with a baby blanket, and it was wonderful just in its simplicity, for a break!

Not sure about the gender - I'd better not go there! Nice to do something simple and methodical sometimes (I'm pretty good at the simple bit!!)

Love the idea of the felt bear with a blanket - perfect baby pressie. (I think it caught my eye on flickr!)
