BUFFY the bear......


I had a re-inventing moment and sought out my original head which I fiddled with here and there and the end result was Buffy. I must admit I'm not sure if I enjoy these re-inventing moments as it feels like I have gone backwards when I would much prefer to go forward! 
I'm quite excited about a couple of bears that are in the sewing process as I feel I have come out of my comfort zone and I'm working on those care worn oldies - I have a real soft spot for these type of bears and have quite a few in my collection.
It is so windy today and my laundry is literally being spun dry! Bet I end up rescuing undies and such from around the garden LOL!

I don't think updating your original patterns is going backwards... you've probably learned so much since then! I like to work on something older when I'm trying something new as well... just in case it fails, I know I'll be making at least one thing that will work!

And oh my... undies away!!!

If this is going "backwards" then girl you got it going on!!! :-) Buffy is adorable. I understand what you are saying though. I have made a few bears from a pattern I thought I would not use again but someone will ask for an old design, and I think, maybe I should resurrect it again. You work is wonderful, I love the watercolor effect over the entire body, they are just fabulous.

Thank you to you ladies for your very kind comments:o)) It is always good to get feedback on my work as I find it very inspiring especially when I have one of my little 'what's wrong with my work moments'!
