Tatsy Bear (a tale of brushing your ami)

Tatsy Bear

You can tell I have kids.
I wanted to make a Teddy bear (a bit like the one Peppa Pig has) - you know, big head, little body and teeny tiny arms and legs.

So I did. 
I found a ball of random mohair-ish stuff in my stash and played around a bit.

Then I thought I'd brush it.   
(I even made a special trip to the pet shop buy a special pet slicker brush)

But let me warn you, brushing is a no-return affair.
Once you start, there's no going back. 
You must persevere. 
(Scratching your fingers as you go, I found)

And then? 
You wonder if you did the right thing.
If perhaps, you preferred it before you attacked it with the dog brush....?

Much fun, anyhows.

And before I go lovely peeps, I must apologise to many of you for not being able to comment on your smashing blogs.
It seems that Blogger, combined with my iPad (which is in need of an update) have decided that I cannot comment on those of you with an embedded comment box. (If you have a commenty pop-up-box like me, then I can)
So sorry.
Hope to catch up with you all soon.

  20. They are adorable!! I can imagine the pet brushes would skin your hands though as you do it, ouchie! Mind you I'm typing with my index finger held up in the air as yesterday while making a new cloth for my craft table I accidentally sewed straight through it, needle went in my nail and came out the other side, eek! It's not bad though today, just sore and two holes in it, on the plus side my cloth looks great, lol!

    Have a great weekend my lovely,
