Ice skating polar bear


I had the opportunity to do an extra block for Debbie Smith's DYB xmas blocks. As a companion to the "brrrrrrrr" snowman (see below) I chose to do an ice skating polar bear... These whimsical xmas blocks have been a nice break from the usual fare but I'm ready to get back down to basics again.

I did try my hand at a beaded ribbon for the northern lights and Cobi was right... it is fun and I'm anxious to try it again.

Those blocks are too cute Gerry !
You have a fantastic fantasy and you have the skills to make your ideas in fabric! Chapeau!
How is your dog doing?

I love your skating snowman! Yet another one of your works that will inspire me when I make a Christmas block! You are awesome.

The polar bear is way to cute. You have a great eye for the details.

There are so many details I like about this block. The overall effect just makes me smile. The beaded ice trail is terrific and the dotted trail below the bear...is that glitter? He's just marvelous!

The pond was fabric with the glitter already embedded on it. A fabulous scrap I received from my super secret sister and was perfect for this block.... Glad you liked it and glad it made you smile... p.s. The bear is actually a "her".. no male polar bear would be caught in pink skates!!! LOL Gerry
