(Hi Sweets4Ever...If having more than one bear disqualifies me from the miniature challenge, please let me know and I'll resubmit photos with only one bear - - thanks!)

These bears are tired of staying awake at night to chase away bad dreams.  Instead as they sit around a quarter, they are considering whether they want to try out their wings to become butterflies.

I found a book at the library on making miniature bears and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I definitely got carried away as I experimented with different patterns, reduction (to 70%!), various fabric and naps. 
s

Their limbs are attached with embroidery floss which allows them to rotate, and a cotter pin connecting the head to the body allows the head to move and hold it's position.

From the photos notice when sitting they are about the size of a quarter, or apx 1", and when standing upright measure about 2".

Although hard to see in the photos, the hands/feet have contrasting pads along with eyes, a nose and mouth to show expression on the face.



After completing a few (without wings), I read a poem* which captured the sweetness of these gentle giants and inspired me to attach a few silk flowers for their wings.



BUTTERFLY*
Flutter by,
butterfly,
Floating flower
in the sky
Kiss me with your
Petal wings - -
Whisper secrets,
Tell of spring.



Thanks for looking!   Roll Eyes
