Big Bear Teddy Bear

The State animal of CA is the grizzly bear as well, the name of where my Aunt & Uncle live is Big Bear Lake.

The pattern I drew did not lend itself to a silhouette pattern so I opted for a full jointed bear.
I Googled pictures of Big Bear Lake to get reference for the vista I planned to stitch on one side.

I am not 100% happy with how the head joins the body and I want the feet to be more pigeon toed - so more mods to be done on future pattern attempts.
I am happy how the 1st attempt turned out especially with the embroidered details in the tree, water and rocks :)

Toronto Moose

This Toronto coloured Moose was made for my BIG boss at work.

He hales from Newfoundland and Toronto is his favorite team. With his promotion and moving to the head offices in the USA, I wanted to ensure Canada "represents" - so I made him a mascot for his desk.

I created this pattern using a reindeer pattern as a reference point. I think I did a good job, not 100% happy with bits of it - the toes did not work out the way I wanted, but his antlers turned out awesome. As well the ears can be posed "attentively up" and "depressed down".

My direct boss loves turkey, I have in the past drawn her as a turkey and decided she deserved a desk mascot as well. :)

I created this pattern using a goose pattern as a reference point.

A lot of work went into the four layers in the tail and choosing the colours for the body, wings, head and tail. I really like his wattle and the black heart shaped beads I used for his eyes. His legs could be stronger and more detailed but he can stand on his own.

My LOVE Piggy

This PIGGY was made for my husband to take with him on a business trip, it was created from a Japanese pattern I found online.

Some bits I really like - I added a curly tail with wire inside to hold its shape and added a pretty bow. I custom coloured the cheek patches and added the heart on his rump.

I was unhappy with his legs, and would modify the pattern if I make another.
