It looks like I have some catching up to do!
A month and two days ago, I finally opened my etsy shop. It has been a whirlwind of figuring out the rules, meeting other Albertan sellers in the forum, discovering treasuries and trying to get my shop looking the way I want it to. Part of that is getting my products to a place where I want them.
First off, I have been planning for bears, and today, finally got to make some! I had ordered and received some gorgeous 100% wool felt from filzfelt and have been working on designs for it for a few weeks. I knew that I wanted a pillow, and that it would be a bear. Today I finally braved up and sliced into the gorgeous, creamy felt. And here’s where I’m at.
And in production. . . I cut out a natural brown coloured bear too. He should be ready to go tomorrow. In total, I have chalked out what should be seven bears: four brown and three polar-y Churchill bears.
I had hoped to find some local wool to stuff the bears with, and am still looking. . . but in the meantime, raw cotton will fill them out.
Tomorrow: finishing touches, writing blurbs, and taking more pictures.
