Bear Crazy

In June I took a trip to the local library. While looking through the crochet books there I saw a crocheted bear. He looked so cute I had to go home and start working on some bears. I have had a few doll joints in my stock for awhile, so decided that I would make a jointed bear. Her arms, legs and neck aare jointed.



Then I decided that I would do a string jointed bear. That is when you use a doll needle to use yarn or fishing line to attach the arms and legs to the bear so that they can move up and down. This little bear is made out of simply soft yarn and is soooo soft.

Then a  pirate bear seemed appropriate since I’m currently in the Tampa area.

Then I had the idea for this cute little cuddle brown bear. He by the way sold within a few minutes at the next show I did.

Then there was this cute little purple bear.  She was only 5 inches tall and she too sold very quickly.  Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of her and it is not very clear.

I am sure there will be more bears, hopefully I will be able to post a few patterns soon. Just seems like not enough time to accomplish all I want to. I am sure we all have that same problem.

Rhino’s Emporium and Our Soap Savers

Rhino’s Emporium (www.rhinosemporium.com) makes these wonderful soaps.  We decided that maybe those wonderful soaps could use some soap savers.  So we’re going to make the soap savers and you can purchase them both on our site at www.babblinghook.com or when you purchase soaps at www.rhinosemporium.com you can purchase the soap savers there.

They have a special dead man’s soap available for halloween, haven’t figured out which is the appropriate soap saver for that one yet.   They also have an really good dog bar soap with natural flea repellents and a good cat soap.  They even have a pumpkin pie soap – I wouldn’t suggest nibbling on it though.

November

Did my first craft fair the 30th of November. Was a lot of fun, not very profitable in money, but gained a lot of knowledge.  Also started making some little amigurumi animals. They orange cattan puppy dog 1went really fast at the last craft show and they are sooooo much fun to make.
