Punk/Goth Bears

I mentioned last week that I was sewing up a pair of punk/goth teddy bears like the one I made for my sister back in March. Her friends really loved hers, so she asked me if I could make them some on the cheap. 

To keep the cost down I used acrylic felt, painted the faces (instead of a combination of paint and embroidery), used almost all scraps and made them about 50% of the size. I still think they came out really good!

Bears altered from this Dolls and Daydreams panda pattern

I was already experiencing the beginning of the sinus infection that has me completely laid up today, so I didn't have much patience for photography. I'd find a shady spot and the wind would blow my tree cover away. I got three photos before I said, "Screw it."

Pleated skirts also by Dolls and Daydreams. Fuzzy boots are my own. 

It isn't very clear in the picture above (or this one, really, sinus infection, remember?) but I just had to try to get a better shot of the lace overlay with little red spiders on the web printed skirt. 

I wanted the girls to be on cell phones, texting each other. One was going to be saying "OMG!", while her friend said, "SRSLY?" I couldn't figure out how to do it, though. Polymer clay was my only thought, but then how would they carry them? I ended up leaving well enough alone and shipping them out last night. I can't wait to hear the reactions!
