In the previous 2 posts we learnt about all the different body parts and sewing and stuffing the head. If you take a look at the first picture here are all the parts of the bear ready to be stitched.
This is Sherlock Katherines bear all ready to be stitched together, with his friends watching patiently to see if hes going to make the transition from parts to being!
Here we are all stitched together now with our mechanical pieces attached and hidden so that we can move, just need to be stuffed now!
And here are some of the lovely ladies on the course together with our lovely host and designer Angela Burman, AKA Burman Bears. From Left to right: Noelleen with her bear Belle, April with her bear Simcoe, Angela our host, Katherine and her bear Sherlock, named after her cat and Liz with her bear Juneau. Enjoying a well deserved glass of something fizzy as graceously provided by Liz. Thank you ladies it was a wonderful day!
Finally here is Marley bear and his big brother George. Marley is a bear I purchased from Angel at Burman Bears and George his big brother is whom I made on the day. George has yet to be adorned with his handmade jacket and I will be back to share that with you soon. George has also been in the wars a bit, defending his little brother and has stitched battle scars in a number of places!
Well that's it from the A day in the life of a Burman Bears workshop series. Hope you have enjoyed sharing the day with us and always remember "The Bear Necessities of Life!"
