The two items I have are what I call Snuggle Bears. They're 12 inch chenille bears. They are both from the land of Sugar and Spice.
This is the sweetest of bears-- Cupcake. She is made from a soft pink chenille. She loves to play dress up and is attired in white tutu and pink ribbons.
Her face is hand embroidered and her seams are re-enforced to hold up to lots of loving from little ones. She is completely machine washable.
Her tutu and ribbons are easily removed.
This Cupcake bear is Jenna's and she's carried her everywhere since I made it. She even took her to school today for show and tell and slept with her last night.
This little guy is Snickerdoodle. He is made from a pale blue chenille. He doesn't like to wear many clothes so is only wearing his scarf. He is made like Cupcake.
If you notice I tried to make Cupcake and Snickerdoodle have somewhat Asian eyes which Jenna just loves! But I plan to offer them with oval eyes and a perfected version of the Asian eyes.
Ryan is not into cuddly toys but actually wanted to sleep with Snickerdoodle last night! His scarf is longer here in this photo but then I shortened it for safety.
Here are my babies with their bears. Emma is NOT happy!!!! I took this last night and she was tired and cranky and ready for bed. She is holding her Snuggle Bear Cupcake in sage green chenille and a cream colored tutu. I haven't got her on the site because I didn't like how her face turned out. Emma doesn't seem to care though.
I will have bears in soft pink, soft blue, sage green and yellow. This afternoon I am working on some bunnies with multiple fabrics. Another project I am working on is soft, cuddly Asian dolls.
All the loveys will be baby and toddler safe with no buttons or parts that can be a choking hazard.
To top it all off I realized when I started this post that THIS IS MY 100th POST!!! Yeah! So to celebrate I am going to give away some of my Snuggle Bears to my readers! Leave a comment and let me know that you want a bear and I will assign each comment a number in the order it came in. On Friday we'll hold a drawing and give away 5 bears. The winners can pick what color and attire they want their bears to have and what type of eyes they want. So their bears will be custom made! I should have more clothing choices for boy bears by then, including a cute little vest.
Oh, and don't forget that if you enter Cynthia's raffle, tell her you heard about her from me and win then you get a free bear or bunny from me!
I kind of hate to advertise this here, I never intended my blog to be an "advertisement" but when I moved to Kansas City I had just started a stay at home job on the computer doing Auto CAD. The job was perfect! But unfortunately the economy has hurt the company I worked for and they had to let most of their employees go. So now I am jobless. This is my way of trying to stay home with the babies for another year or two. I know there are people on Etsy and eBay who make that their full time jobs so I'm hoping for the best-- especially with Christmas coming.
I still haven't done anything with my dishwasher yet. My brother was busy yesterday so he was unable to help me disconnect it and take it back to Best Buy. And, of course, Best Buy hasn't called to come fix it!
