I know it is only November but the market season is nearly upon us, so here are some Santas I have been making!
Prototype Polar Bear Surprise: an idea for Christmas…
I know it is very early to be thinking about Christmas, but stock doesn’t appear from nowhere – you need to plan ahead.
This polar bear has a surprise inside.
Made with a cut up kitchen roll tube (and gaffer tape: not the most attractive solution, but as I say a prototype). The body (and head) of the bear is needle felted.
I thought I could also make snowmen, penguins and Father Christmas. Once whatever treats inside are consumed it can be used to store other things, or the top half can be taken off the tube and used as a (oversized) finger puppet.
Would appreciate any comments…
