How big are the bears?

I set a ruler in front of the bears to give you a better sense of their size.

Little Mama Bear

To go with the doll's house size dolls I make, I thought it was time to add 'The Three Bears' into the mix.

So here is my first Mama Bear prototype. I'm still tweaking the  pattern for the head but I am delighted with her wardrobe.

Every lady of the house needs a chatelaine. 

Check fabric is great for stitching straight borders.

The green wool shawl jacket is all one piece, and the sleeves are sewn into the jacket as well.

There isn't a lot of space for decorative embroidery but just enough to have fun.

Angel Embroidery

For the last month I have taken a break from my crewel embroidery to work on a new style and subject. It isn't really stumpwork, more a Janet variation of stumpwork embroidery.

The wings and halo are stitched in separate pieces, then assembled on a backing fabric.

The doll is dressed and embroidered, then added to the background piece.
