I am setting up a new shop at Zibbet, please check it out.
Etsy rates are really high and Zibbet looks like a good alternative.
There are only listed 3 bears there so far, but gradually I will list them all there.
Feel free to contact me, if you want a particular bear listed there.

Thank you!

The orange bear has his ears and some friends to

 I finished the orange bear with the exelsior filling and he feels a little bit crunchy now, I like it :)
He looks graet with his coloured friend.
Those colours are welcome in these grey day's here.

Pretty old eyes

Sitting on his bag of wood shavings, this bear is still waiting for his ears to be sewn on.
I have been experimenting with exelsior wood filling to stuff this bear i.s.o. the polyester fiber I normally work with.
As you can see it makes a lot of mess, and dust too! :(
But in the end you get rewarded, because the stitching of the nose and claws is much easier with this kind of filling, but I recommend you try it out.Also, I find it easier to get the exact shape you want.

I found these antique eyes (wondering about on the internet)
and I like them a lot.
They come from an old stock of a long gone warehouse, there not really shoe buttons, just black glass ball's on wire, but still strong and all slightly different.

Now back to the ears, because the bear wants to enjoy my audiobook also.

Have a fine week-end!!

Marcel and Philip(reserved)

I really made a lot of stitches these last few days.
My fingers hurt a little, I hope you like the result.


Here are Philip and Marcel
