***I thought I would pop in and post some pictures of my kitty cat and doggy clown to show how their progress is coming along**I still have a bit of work to get them completed,but I am very happy with the way they are turning out!Both measure about 14 inches tall and have a faux fur body that has been stained to look like an old clown body.Their heads are made from felt and are a two piece design(no gusset)with stuffing added carefully to acheive a three dimensional effect(like sculpting from the inside out).This was one of my very first designs I made with my bears back in 1996!As you can see by the dog,he is a bit on the primitive side,but still cute with his old vintage look!I also added a pic of another new design I made about 3 weeks ago of a new style bear that I am also delighted with.Thank you for stopping in to see my newest creations and I hope you like them!I will post another update when they are fully completed in their hats and pom poms~~~~Sharie

It's been awhile since my last post so I thought I would do a quick update of what new works are in the making.It has been a long winter and I am definitely looking forward to spring,so with this is mind I want to create some new style clowns in wonderful old dull pastel colors,and with a whole new body design for a super old vintage look.I've posted some older pics to give you an idea of what I have in mind.I did love the look of my slimprim clowns with the cloth bodies,but wasn't too pleased with their over-prim skinny bodies with long lanky arms.I was also happy with the felt slimkins(entirely made from felt)but I thought their body coloring could have been a bit brighter soooo.....I am working on a brand new design that mixes the two styles into one!I will have the mohair style heads on the felt style bodies,and the felt heads on mohair,faux fur and handtinted felt bodies.I am pretty happy with how the new gang is turning out,and I will also be offering cute prim puppy dogs with this new line!I had made some little felt dog and cat heads I used to make for craft shows(in 1996!)packed away in my closet and almost long forgotten until I was clearing out some of my sewing &supply stash and found them~~~thats when the light bulb went off in my brain for this new idea lol,but of course that is usually how we come accross a great idea.I also have other bears and kitties in the making and will be sure to post some new pics of their progress soon,and hope you will like them as much as I do!~~~~Sharie

I am happy to announce the bears and kitty cats that were in progress are now completed and available in my etsy shop.I was hoping to have the grand opening for my new webstore but didn't have the chance to upgrade to premium.I would have only been able to list one photo for each teddy or friend and that wouldn't do...lol!You also may notice that the felt kitty is wearing a different dress than her original in progress pic.This is because I found a pesky tiny brown spot on her dress so I decided against using it for her.I hope you enjoy meeting them all and again,they can be found in my etsy shop.~~~~Sharie***Abby kitty above in blue dress, Gabby bear in white dress and pink tabby kitty Bonnie have been adopted.Charlie panda is still available.Thank you!***
