about the bears
i have enjoyed sewing and knitting for the last 30 years , always having something on the go , in 2008
i bought a bear kit to make a bear for my sister as a gift , and i changed the shape of the paw pads , i then thought it would be fun and more satisfying to design my own from scratch
skye rose bears was born a little while later
i absolutely love making them , all the bears and critters are lovingly stitched by hand
i only get the sewing machine out for the clothing
i love designing the little outfits , and use sewing , knitting and more recently crochet to dress the bears
