Hello and welcome!
I first came across bear making in 2004 when I saw a bear magazine in a shop in England.
I loved it so much that I read everything I could about it and then tried to sew my first little teddybear. Bless that little teddybear...
But it was a start, and you learn from your misstakes. In 2007 I began to make my own patterns and from there it went.
I like teddybears that are a bit different from the traditional ones as you can see in my creations. But I do make traditional bears from time to time.
