Bessy Angel Bunny

I finally tried my hand at Needle Punch. This little gal is of course 3 dimensional. She is not yet finished but couldn't wait to share her with you all. The back side is of course also finished. She is free standing and weighted.

The first photo was before I painted the eggs and added other details. So you have before and after photos. As I stated above the back side is also finished.  If you haven't tried your hand at punch needle embroidery give it a try. It is a lot of fun.

Rug Hooked Teddy Bear

Sewed the fabric bear yesterday and it is a good thing that I tried this before I hooked the pieces.
The pads of the bear feet do not fit well into the leg parts so will choose a different pattern for this bear. In fact I had to cut some of the leg to make it fit.
My first rug hooked Teddy Bear I did not do this initial first step. Lucky the Ending was good.
Here is a picture of my first bear.

Do you want to make your own Rug Hooked Teddy Bear?
It is easy to do this.
The hardest part of dimensional rug hooking is the assembly. I hope to help you out with different steps here and in an online tutorial.

Rug hooking a Teddy Bear

This week or next week I hope to start another Teddy Bear that is rug hooked. I am going to try my hand at jointing the arms and legs on this bear.
I will probably be using cleaned raw mohair to hook this bear with. I am thinking about a white bear with pastel colored ear and paw inserts. But we will see what it ends up looking like.
First I need to sew a cloth bear to make sure that this pattern will work for rug hooking. That is the first thing I recommend is to do a test run in fabric of something you are thinking about creating in the art of dimensional rug hooking. It would be very disappointing to do all your rug hooking and then find out the pieces are not going to go together.

If you have any questions about this art form feel free to ask and I will try my best to answer it.

Stay tuned for the free online dimensional rug hooking class. Hope to get to that soon.
