My dear Kim,
Your mini bear is absolutely darling!  As for me, I've officially jumped out of the miniature bear market just this past week.  I'll leave those squirmey little bears to those of you gals who truly have the talent for designing and making them.   bear_original

Happy Halloween from Timmy and me

What a little cutie, Sabine!!! I've only made one crocheted bear, and it drove me nuts!!!! So I'm full of admiration that a) you can crochet something this small and b) make him so cute  bear_thumb

Sarah it was exactly like moccasin on the fur side but nothing like it on the backing. I have some moccasin and this was very odd. When you look at the backing it looks like false ultra suede. Its as if the backing had been bonded on. Would make great paw pads. By the way I'm as bad as you, I must get a tripod!

Hi Amanda
hehe! Here's to us who continue to stack books lol.  They make great tripods and I even have litte ones squeezed in between the big ones so I can angle and take the perfect shot hehe :lol:

Sabine, your little crochet bear is adorable!
Dilu, I just love all of your little bears, they each have their own personality and job bear_laugh bear_laugh by the looks of it. Please post a picture of your tree when you get it decorated.

Hmmmmm since I don't have beary many mini's yet I will probably just use the regular tree----maybe by next year I tiny tree.  We have so little room here the tea was put on a ledge 10 feet up in the air....The ceiling goes to 14 it would be hard to see these really small ones......

oh dear

too many decisions......

hopefuly I will have worked it out by December 25th.  But I am not holding my breath.... :rolleyes:

Hey! you could get a miniature tree just for the Mini's. That's what we used to do put up a mini tree up in the family room when my kid were tiny and let them decorate it. The Big tree was not in the play room.
but you could just put up one mini tree for the mini bears call it a display!!! :P
Love, kathy

tippy3.jpgHi all, Sabine - what a cute pumpkin bear, I can't even think how to start crochetting - very clever
Dilu - I love your christmas tree bears :)

I've just finished my first mini tabby cat, she is only 2.7" so I am now totally cross eyed  bear_wacko  I called her Little Miss Tippy Toes because she can pose up on her tippy toes when playing with her wool ball..  I just put her details in the for sale section and will try her on Ebay.
