Now, don't get me wrong, I expected them to be small pieces of mohair for that price... but after my initial purchase, I kind of didn't think about it anymore.
Then the mohair arrived, and my brain yelled at me "HEY! These are SMALL pieces... you don't have a pattern this small!!! IDIOT!" Thankfully, my brain quickly forgave me, though, and set to work on making a small pattern.
Now I have a little bear who stands roughly 6 inches tall (now... at this point you might be saying, "Wait a minute, Heather... don't MOST of your bears stand about 6 inches tall?!" and you would be correct... my bears so far have been about 6-8 inches... so how I managed to draw this one and think "Oh yeah, he's small!" I have no idea... but his pattern fits on the mohair pieces, and that's what counts!)
He was a lot cuter yesterday before the 'incident'... I had decided this bear should have a stitched nose... and it all went swimmingly, until the LAST stitch... in which someone started talking to me and I pushed the needle out through his cheek when I looked away for a second! I could have wept.
So out came his stitched nose, and up rose my level of aggrivation, and he ended up with a needle-felted nose that just doesn't look as cute as the stitched one did.
Oh well :) This one was just a practice run before I cut into the mohair, anyways. So, without further ado, here's my latest little bear:
Who is this? A Koala?
No... not quite!
It's a little bear! (shocking, right?)
Heather thought I was a 'little' bear... but look at that bear to hand ratio! Heather is an idiot.
It's ok though, I'm still small... and let me tell you, being small ROCKS!
I can stand up and Heather has no clue!
I can sit down and Heather has no clue!
Aww man... my life is boring.
Don't feel too bad for this guy, he's all melodrama because I haven't given him a name beyond "Small Bear with Big Head", which, to be honest, I don't think he appreciates very much.
If anyone has any name suggestions, I'm all for them. :) I've got nothing... I keep trying to figure out one for him, but then I get so annoyed that he's not as cute as he should have been, thanks to the nose trouble... that I just end up thinking "GraaRGH!" which... while amusing, probably isn't the best name for him.
