I have been making the bears hats and accessories from various felts and felting techniques for a number of years now. Although my methods may have changed over those years I continue to make each hat to custom fit the individual bear head and ears, this often means several fittings and adjustments until the hat fits just right. Once I have completed the hat it is left to stand and dry. At this point I move on to making the custom decoration and other accessories for the bear, should he or she require them.
I have been busy the last two weeks working on a couple of bears towards a website update. I am just about to finish this little bear who I think will be named Riley who will be available from my website tomorrow, Sunday 18th August
