The Bashful Black Bear

Bashful you ask? That’s what our neighborhood bear seems to be, spotted only on wildlife camera. Now, this is a good thing. You’ll find this bear much more fun to have around!

    Susan, I just love all your new critter designs – for this one I used white felt to make a Kermode bear, also known as a Spirit Bear, a rare subspecies of black bear native to our northern Pacific Coastal area…it turned out just great!
    Thanks for sharing your creative talents!

    Good morning, thank you for sharing your talents and designs with all of us. I have printed out a few of the patterns. I wanted to confirm that the patterns are to be printed in 100%. For example the body of the red headed woodpecker is 4″. Thanks Sue

      Sue, My birds are made when printed at 100%, but you can resize to whatever size works for you!
