A few weeks before Christmas I posted a picture of “Great Grandma’s Mink Coat” and reported that I had been commissioned to turn the amazing fur into teddy bears for someone’s very special Christmas.
I promised to post pictures of the bears, after Christmas, as I didn’t want to spoil anybody’s surprise.
Just in case you didn’t see the previous post, here is a picture of the coat….
And here are the bears!
And a few close-ups of bear #1.
What a joy it was to create these two sweethearts.
Now that the vacation, the Holidays and redecorating my teddy bear room are behind me, I feel renewed energy to put into the teddy bears.
Soon there will be new teddy faces to post in 2012.
And on that note, to all of you, a very Happy New Year.
Hugs, Vicki and the bears
