Do your creations evolve as you make them?

I always start with a clear plan in my head . . .this is going to be a girl bear and I have the perfect little piece of lace for her to wear. Maybe even some millinery and pearls !!!

She will be sweet and dainty . . . .

Any sometimes my plan even follows though with what I had in mind : )

And other times I think he will be cute and chubby ~ a mischievous boy bear!
Maybe a little sailor.

But then I have enough mohair remaining, lol, to make a mini bear from the same fabric and I think . . . oh wouldn't a mommy and baby bear be so cute !!!!

But then I discover the cutest little doll sweater, that happens to fit my bear perfectly!!! I hand dye it from cream to a wonderful shade of green. It is around Earth Day so I think . . . this little bear with be called Terra in honor of Earth Day and she will hold the secrets to a greener happier world.

So that is how she evolved !!!!
Do your designs and plans stay the same from start to finish?

This fellow is just gorgeous, Karen. We are still drawn to the same things, even after all these years. Are you sure you and Sarah weren't switched at birth LOL

Karen what a beautiful bear and love the green sweater. My bears never turn out how I envisioned them so I just let their bearonalities emerge as I create them they have a way of telling me who they want to be in the end.
