Ok here we go
 
 I am answering your post on here @Diane i have lots of info on miniature bears and yes I would recommend doing by hand and great for taking away with you.

These are 2 of my miniatures the panda was from a kit bought in Holland by a friend of mine.
@Celia There's just something really appealing about a miniature bear, they are so tiny.

Woohooo, thanks Iminei and thank you ladies for joining me!!!  0_0

I started a Faux fur teddy bear(months ago) and had to carefully iron some interfacing on to every piece because the backing was so stretchy. So from one newb to another, I suggest either a mohair piece, or good viscose or tiny teddy fur before going Faux. most of the ones I mention have more of a woven backing than a knit backing.

A newb mistake with the faux fur was to leave the hair on the 'seam' sections. I have read since starting the first one that you should carefully trim long hair to make seaming easier.  :embarrassed: Lesson learned. I wouldn't imagine that would be an issue on the miniature bear fabric.

My kit should be here within a few days, so I'll post a pic of my goodies when they arrive.  0_0

Ok I have to admit I have started knitting cashmere scarf for my lovely friend I used to work with  who  at the moment has Covid.

I don’t really like Christmas it has not been good for me for quite a while but these days  I do love to see other people enjoying it.

I like the idea of making things for other people.

@charley
30 mins ago I had an offer from someone on FB, who I messaged back to say they were available. 
If she doesn't respond I'll come back to you immediately. 
Hope that's ok?
