Makin' Cotton Candy!

I've been busy in my lab creating fat free, sugar free Cotton Candy that's still yummy and can be enjoyed year round! I think it just might be a hit! (Wait, my "lab"? Er, reminds me of a high school science class I flunked!) Introducing the Cotton Candy Cubs!

These little guys are 7 inches tall and made of hand-dyed LouBear Mohair in the softest, yummiest colors of cotton candy. The backing on this mohair is black giving the color even more brightness and depth. I've been having so much fun with these colors! I can't wait to make the rest of the mohair into bears today!

The cubs'll have special little boxes to sit on... my next project once the bears are done! Seven Cotton Candy Cubs will make their debut at the Maine Teddy Bear & Fiber Arts Show on July 11 in Wells, Maine. Future siblings in this limited series will be available on my website through the end of August... just waiting for more mohair to arrive from South Africa! No two will be exactly the same in color or facial expression but they'll all be guilt free!

I must get back to my lab... er... studio but before I go I must ask....
which is your favorite color?

Those are soooo sweet! (no pun intended) They look so cuddly! They are all great colors, but I'm rather fond of the minty one! =)

7 Cotton Candy Cubs 7 inches are very sweet bears :) MMM...
All colours are very beautiful, it is very difficult to choose one (me as difficultly to choose when I buy a fabric for bears)
I choose as with Shantell purple

Hi Daphne!
I just saw the picture of these little guys in Loubear's newsletter. They are just wonderful! I love all the colors, but I think blue is my favorite. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Hi Daphne! Your cotton candy bears are cute! Any chance you'd be willing to share the pattern? Or tell me where I could get one from?

Daphne Blau said...

Thank you for the compliments! Jacqui - They are my original creations, as all my bears are. The pattern is not for sale.
