A trio of angels!
These three stunning panda-style bears were completed this week admist the chaos of trying to redecorate the kids rooms! (for the last 18mths they've both wanted to share a room - but I think the strain of being in each others pockets has finally taken it's toll and the fighting got beyond ridiculous. So we've moving them out, repainting the spare room and moving them back into their own spaces! This doesn't sound like that big of a deal when you write it out like that - but OH MY GOSH do they have a lot of crap between them! Too many hours have been spend sorting through toys and clothes, which meant that these three bears have taken a lot longer to complete then normal.
(Chelsea's room is nearly finished - she was chuffed to find an old princess dress-up dress that matched her walls! Also - note the tricky use of our faux fur 'Amethyst Sparkle' for her curtains! I wasn't sure if it would work - but it actually looks really cool and works as block-out curtains too due to the density of the pile! Byron is taking some convincing on colour choice though. Right now he wants frog-green, but Daddy and I are trying to persuade him to try a stormy blue or mint green instead!).
But the three Angel bears did finally get finished today - and they were all listed on our website earlier this evening. And they're all now adopted!
We do have a very limited amount of kits though, if you're interested in having a go at making one of these pretty pandas yourself? There's only one kit available for the sweet girl below, and it can be found in our etsy store. If you just like her mohair, we have one fat 1/4m piece of the caramel/beige coloured mohair left in stock, and the polar white curly kid mohair can also be found in store.
And the sweet lady below was made from the polar kid mohair again, and a piece we hand-dyed a stormy grey. We don't have any more of the medium kid mohair dyed in this grey colour ( we do have a longer 40mm pile piece), but we do have some in buttercup yellow, and cobalt blue that would also pair nicely with the white in panda-style like this. Or even with each other to make a really vibrant panda! Our pattern for these panda's is our 16" Lyric design.
And lastly, sweet Gabriel Angel bear. He too has been adopted, but we have TWO kits available for him that include all the mohair you need, plus the pattern, joints, wings, eyes, pendant etc. This fur is actually really lovely to work with despite being so long, and the effect it gives the bears is divine!
