I will be adding these new bears today also. Depends if I get up before you guys read this or not. As its the first day of my hollibobs its unlikely! Both bears are sporting some new merchandising material which i want to do a full post on later this week.
The first is `Clarence`. He is in the same blonde toffee coloured plush as Daisy but a distinctly different look to his little face. He is a bit Christmassy with his gingerbread man pads. Like Daisy, fully jointed and all hand sewn. He has safety eyes instead of the sew in eyes that Daisy had. I haven't decided which I prefer yet.
The next one is `Juliet`. She was a real labour of love. I had a lovely faux fur gilet that I quite honestly never wore more than once or twice. I kept looking at the gorgeous fur on the inside and wondering. Well, the conclusion is that it made a beautiful bear but oh boy was it tough to sew! My fingers really hurt and I broke no less than three sewing needles! Safe to say, it will be a while before I even consider the bit that is left! Look closely at her inner arms. The gilet had some paisley embroidery at the bottom and there just wasn`t enough plain to do the whole job, so I used the embroidered bit and I think it looks like she has nice feminine tattoos.
Happy Christmas !!!!!!
