October 1, 2022: I wish it could be October all year long. I love the moody weather, the turning leaves-- the pumpkins everywhere! I just want to sew all day and then stay up all night reading.
My youngest son decided to create a teddy bear for his art portfolio at school, so I drew up a small bear pattern and made my own bear alongside him. I simplified the pattern quite a bit and gave the design an oversized applehead similar to what my first bears had. It was nice to make an easier bear for a change, but I ended up redoing the pattern anyway (elongating the upper torso, adding a belly, etc...).
I have three bears saved up so far for the next round of Etsy listings. I don't know when I'll list them, but it should be prior to Christmas.
Feel free to stay tuned for updates here, or at The Peach Peddler page on Facebook. I don't maintain an email notification list because I don't want to be a bother. 🤓
In the interest of fairness to my fellow arctophiles who prefer to avoid Facebook and other social media sites, I'll try to post information on upcoming bears here first.
I hope that you're all staying safe and healthy.
