Think Vintage!

It's time to try something new, which is kind of ironic as it's actually something rather old! I wanted to make some vintage style bears. It seems that most collectors have a bigger interest in this style, moreso than my usual rather 'out there' bears! So, in an attempt to please everyone, as usual, here are my latest efforts!

Bruin is felted in a lovely natural romney wool, it has neat flecks and and random hairs in it!

Bruin wears a felt shirt with vintage trims and black ribbon. Both bears have shading added.

Tomsk is a sweet little fellow wearing his little felt overalls and hat
Heather is not done in the same style, I had finished her before the 'vintage' struck me, but she still needed something extra, so I added the lovely lacy trims
Her nose was a lot of fun! And the lace is devine!

I hope you enjoyed visiting my latest work! I intend to make rather a few more vintage style bears as the next show isn't too far away! In May we have the Doll and Bear show and I only take my best work to that one! Plus there are comps to enter!!
Happy crafting!
