Embroidered bears

A few years ago I bought a new sewing machine with an embroidery attachment. It opened up a whole new world of sewing for me. Many of my bears are inspired by, or enhanced with, machine embroidery designs.

Purple Star Bear
Embroidered with purple stars on red felt with  a plush head and limbs, this bear is tradition with a twist and  would be a  great bear for any star!
Art Deco Bear
This art deco inspired bear is made from black material that has been embroidered with goldwork on my embroidery machine and was inspired by the frequent use of these colours during the art deco period.

Red gold green colourwork bear
This bear is made with calico embroidered with Jacobean Colourwork designs from Bunnycup embroidery on my embroidery machine.  Unlike my previous colourwork bear he is limited to red, gold and green, which has a striking effect.

Snakes and Ladders bear
The checked fabric was the inspiration for this bear, it reminded me of a game board. I had already stitched a Snakes and Ladders game for my son on red gingham
, so decided to use the embroidery designs on this fabric and turn it into a bear!
Blackwork bear
This little bear is a variation of my earlier colourwork bear. He is made from vibrant orange material that has been embroidered with blackwork on my embroidery machine.
Flower Power bear
Made from recycled denim, this bear was inspired by the flower power era. Enhanced with machine embroidered with designs from Bunnycup embroidery, i think this bear would look great on the dashboard of a VW camper!

Colourwork bear
This little bear was made with calico embroidered with Jacobean Colourwork designs from Bunnycup embroidery on my embroidery machine.

This little bear is made from yellow gingham and machine embroidered with a single black chicken on one side and has some beans in his tummy and bottom to weight him a little. I wanted to design a bear that would look at home sitting on the windowsill of a country kitchen.
Gingerbread bear
this bear was made as a Christmas gift in the style of a gingerbread man
Sold
This little bear is another variation of my earlier colourwork bear. He is made from calico that has been embroidered with cream thread on my embroidery machine and he has contrasting brown claws, a brown nose and ribbon to match.


I often use my own designs but I am also grateful to bunnycup embroidery for use of their fantastic designs.
