Bears From January

Here are some bears that I created last month.  January was a busy month, but the results were some awesome bears!  Here's just a few.










There were so many more bears, but these were some of my favorites from January.  If you want to keep up more with the bears I make, please "like" Bridenbun Charmed Cubs on Facebook.  Adoption opportunities can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/BridenbunCharmedCubs and http://www.ebay.com/sch/bridenbun/m.html.

Bear 773

The newest addition to my cub nursery is bear 773.  She is made from yellow chenille yarn.  I did not weight this bear because honestly, I feel like it wasn't necessary.  Her simple and bright look was perfect.

She is around 2 1/2 inches at her full length from head to toe.  She is wearing a key charm.  She is very light, weighing an 1 ounce.

This little bear will not have a sequenced tag like my other bears.  I put on her tag last night and messed it up.  I decided, well, this little one will go without.

If you have any questions and/or comments, leave me a note below this posting.

Thank you.

Online Craft Show

Good morning everyone,

Well, last week craft show took place, and it ended Monday night with only 3 bears that did not get adopted.  I was really happy with the results.  I will have another one eventually.  I did plan to have one in July, but I'll see how it goes.  I wanted to thank all of those that bought bears and all of those that gave me support and cheered me on. 

It was really nice to have a small craft show and not have to deal with the fees, the move in, the set up, and then the take down and being just exhausted.  The plus side to a craft show, though, is meeting new and different people and seeing their reactions to the bears.

I will be slowing down making bears.  I have started a new craft project so I won't burn myself out on one.  I really like crocheting bears, and I don't want to get to the point where making a bear is getting difficult.  The last break I took, I didn't crochet a bear for a year.

Thank you so much for visiting my auction today.  Take care.

Bridenbun Charmed Cubs Online Craft Show Begins Tonight

Tonight, the eBay listings will start posting at 10:30 PM EST.  Every five minutes a bear will post.  They will post out of sequence.  There will be around 30 bears being posted.  So, I hope you're able to stick around and get the bear that you want.  Look for 'bridenbun' on eBay and watch for the listings.  You can also find me at http://www.ebay.com/sch/bridenbun/m.html.

I will be available for questions about the bears on facebook.  Search for Bridenbun Charmed Bears, give me a "like", and ask a away.

Are you ready to get the bear you've been waiting for?  They're ready for their new home.

Thank you so much to everyone who has given me support and all the kind compliments.  I'll talk to you soon.

Update for the Bridenbun Charmed Cubs Online Craft Show

If you've been following this blog, then you already know about the online craft show I have scheduled for December 2nd.  I thought about having it this week on Black Friday, but I decided not to do that.  It'll be like competing against 10 Goliaths.

With December 2nd approaching, I scheduled all of the bears for listing on eBay.  Listing will still begin at 10:30 PM EST.  Every five minutes a bear will appear on eBay with the "BUY IT NOW" format only.  They will not be listed in sequencial order.  They were done by type of bear.  For instance, the suede bears will be listed in the same time frame, and the plush bears will be listed in a grouped time frame, as well.  All of the bears are listed at $8.00 dollars each or less.

One thing I've been asked is why not list my bears at a higher price?  I've been told they're worth more.  Well, I'm trying to get more people interested in purchasing my bears.  I am trying to build more excitement about them and get more people interested in them.  Having a lower price and having this online craft show will help in that goal.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  If you want to see most of the bears I plan on listing for the online craft show, visit my photo album on facebook at Bridenbun Charmed Cubs Photo Album.
Thank you so much for stopping.

Newest Bears for Week Ending October 29, 2011

This has been a very creative week for me.  With all the beautiful new yarn I got, I've had a overflow of creation inspiration.  I'm so glad to be in my creative flow again.  Let me share with you the new bears I've made.  I hope you like.

Bear 736 is the first one.  She is made from chenille yarn.  She measures approximately at 4 inches full length.  She is already up for adoption on eBay.


Bear 737 is made from Berroco Suede Yarn.  The color is called Dale Evans.  This bear is so cute.  I really enjoyed making her.


I just love Bear 738.  Yellow like the brightest sun and wearing a "HOPE" charm.  She is so plushy soft and light to hold.  I think whomever decides to adopt her will find themselves smiling more so than often.


Bear 739 is made from Berroco Annie Oakley {pink} and Dale Evans {ivory} Suede Yarn.  She has a "Thank You" Charm on to show just how much she appreciates her new owner ...once she's adopted, of course.


This bear is made from Lenzing Rayon Chenille Yarn.  This was the first time I used this type of yarn, and I just love the results.  I added a "perfume" bottle charm to her to finish her look.


This is another Lenzing Rayon Chenille Yarn bear.  Dark brown in color, but look very fuzzy.  She's wearing a ribbon and bug like charm.

Most of the bears you see in this entry are already up for adoption at
http://www.ebay.com/sch/bridenbun/m.htmlIt is such great fun to send them off to their new adopted parents.  These bears are great to make.

Well, I hope you come back next weekend.  Hopefully, I'll have more bears to share with you.  Have a great weekend.

Newest Bears For Week Ending October 22, 2011

I have been crocheting for a while now, and it is always exciting to try new yarns.  When I found chenille yarn on eBay, I knew that yarn would make some of the cutest bears.  The one characteristics I did notice about the yarn is that it captures the light in the room and shows off another facet of its original color.  Chenille yarn is absolutely beautiful.  The colors are luxurious, the feel is soft, and just that alone inspires me to make more bears.

This past week I've been mostly preparing for the online craft show.  I'm trying to decide whether or not I plan on using Auctiva for the craft show on eBay.  I'll probably make a decision around the first of November.

But before then, I will have some bears available for adoption.  I have three on eBay right now as I type this up, and I'm about to introduce you to those bears.  Lets start off with Bear 732.  A picture of her is to the left.  She is made from lavendar acylic chenille yarn.  I used 3mm black round beads for her eyes and black embroidery floss for her nose.  My signature look for all of my bears doesn't fall short on this one.  She has a charm, of course, and a two multi color ribbon.  The one characteristic I noticed about acrylic chenille yarn is that for my bears, it makes the bodies firm.  It's not skin soft, but you can feel the luxury that this type of chenille has.  I was really happy with how Bear 732 turned out.

The next bear is 733.  She is bigger than Bear 732.  She is made from light blue and cream acrylic chenille yarn.  I'm not sure how she turned out bigger, but that's okay.  She is still very cute.  She has 3mm black round beads for eyes, black embroidery floss for eyes.  I gave her a "hope" charm and a blue ribbon.  I truly like her simple, sweet look.

Bear 734 is the last bear for this week.  She is made from Dazzle Rayon Chenille.  Rayon Chenille yarn is so luxuriously soft, and I was instantly in love with the feel and the final look of the frabic.  The yarn I used to make her is thicker in ypp, which is only a plus.  She has golden brown 3mm round beads and brown embroidery floss for her nose.  She is a georgeous bear.  The color is multi-faceted and the yarn is very soft.  Here is a picture of her below.

All three of the bears are already on eBay available for adoption.
