Jumping Jack Bear

Here is a pic of one of the jumping jack bears that my friend brought me. She bought a bag of 4 at the TS. The arms and legs move when you pull the string. I had to come up with the design since I don't have a pattern for them. What do you think? If I sell them at the boutique should I do them all alike or different? Anything you would do differently? ~Anj

Anj, the picture won't enlarge when I click on it and I can't see the details very well. I think the patriotic vest is great. Not sure when the boutique will be. Have you seen that book that has the bear and seasonal hats and stuff? This reminded me of that. ;o) Luvs

Guess I need to stop using the thumbnail code. Didn't they used to open up to the bigger pic? Not anymore, huh? My friend suggested the same book Luvs. ha I have it somewhere in my stash. She said maybe some pads on the feet and hands too.

RE: Jumping Jack Bear

Hi, Anj. This is really cute. I used to paint the jumping jacks of soldiers and angels. How did you avoid getting paint on the string? I taped mine up, but the soldiers took forever to paint.

RE: Jumping Jack Bear

Thank you color crazy. I used a little painters tape across the string closest to where I was painting. I took the bead off to paint it and then put it back on. Wish we could see a pic of your soldiers and angels! I have 3 more of these to paint soon. Not sure what I'm going to paint on them yet. ~Anj
