It surprises me how exactly the same pattern can make very different looking bears!

Amélie was made with the same pattern as Sophie, but she looks a lot more petite than Sophie :)

I tried to add her some antique-like features.
I think it worked well for her.

"Amélie is a daughter of an antique shop owner. Although she gets lonely without her mum who's often travelling for buying goods, Amélie loves seeing all the beautiful antique items she brings back."

My ultimate goal is to make antique-style bears (but not exactly the same style as antique, still somehow modern).

I've been changing my bear's pattern every time I make a new one and I think it's finally settled for now.

I'm happy with how Sophie's come out. She has many cute characters x

"Sophie is a girl who lives in countryside. Today she is picking strawberries since her mum is making a strawberry tart for her visitors."

I struggled so much to finish Michelle.

I was trying to change my pattern into something more ideal, and she was born during my try & error attempts.

As a result, I'm happy with what I've done. She has this little shy face and the delicate laces add vulnerable look on her.

Now she should be arriving somewhere in America :)

"Michelle is a shy girl. She loves the laces she was given from her grandma and always wears them."

Thomas is made of really nice mohair, it gives him a bit of vintage look.

I have a collection of mohair samples from a German supplier but it's still hard to pick the right ones for the look I want.

"Thomas is an active boy who loves playing outdoor. His secret weapon is the little robot on his chest."

I made her after I had 1 month holiday in Tokyo.
Although it was nice spending time there seeing my friends and shopping, I missed making teddy bears a little.

So I was full of inspiration making Stella :)
She is the joy of spring... little flowers and leaves showing up from the ground after the snow melts.

"Stella is a girl who loves spring. She is waiting for the signs of spring to appear."

I probably had the most affection for her because she was my first bear I used my original pattern with, yet she was sold within 24 hours after I added her to my shop!

So I kind of still miss her... I hope she's doing well in Australia :)

"Susie is a girl who loves walking in woods. Her best friend is the little bambi on her chest."
