Bellamine is only 11" tall when standing while her brother Bartholomew is 13". There are some similarities between the two as they're made from the same materials and both have the shoulder hump. Bartholomew is tall and slender with long hind legs that have a knee, and his fore legs are curved as well. Bellamine is plumper with chubby arms and legs and is somewhat pigeon toed when standing.
I spent most of the day yesterday making outfits for them only to be told by a little girl bear that I know that bears don't wear clothes. Well I'm here to say that some bears do wear clothes and they wear them very well.
Following are photos of my two newest bear kids. While the rest of my little ones are adopted I gave life to these two.
Bellamine loves holding Katie Kottontail and Samson. Bartholomew has discover he can hear the ocean if he puts this shell to his ear.
See, how sweet she looks in her new sundress? I couldn't resist this little one if I tried.
Bellamine's muzzle is longer than her brother's and her shoulder hump may look more pronounced. Notice how her arms are straighter and quite chubby.
I'm including this photo to show off Bartholomew's new romper. I think he looks quite handsome.
These last two photos show how Bartholomew has a slender build with thinner and longer limbs. I like the curved legs and think they suit him.
|Thank you Miss Joyce for sending Katie to live with us. I think she's the sweetest little bunny and I love her.|
Peanut butter kisses and honey hugs,
The things I had trouble with while making Bartholomew I managed to do differently with Bellamine which made making her easier and faster. I think that if I were to continue making bears I'd finally get it all figured out. Unfortunately making bears or sewing in general isn't that much easier on the hand, so I've cleaned up my mess and put the sewing machine back on the shelf for the time being.
I purchased a stack of canvases when a local arts and crafts store closed recently so maybe my next foray will be something else I haven't done in a long time, painting on a canvas as apposed to PMC.
