Les Bears by Lesley Stipanov
I live in a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland , Australia. I started making bears in 1993 and very quickly became addicted - I just had to make one more. While I make bears of all sizes I love to create bears under 6"/15cm. They sit so snugly in the palm of your hand. I like to use mohair for my bears but also use upholstery velvets, cashmere and ultrasuede. I make all the bears clothes and hand knit the jumpers even for the 3" bears.
Recently I started making Gollies which are a lot of fun to create.
I also love to repair old and well loved bears.
I enjoy teaching bearmaking and also run a group for bearmakers.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my site and will visit again as I update with my new creations. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries about my bears, gollies, patterns, kits or classes.
