Teddy Bank

cait1July 2, 2010

Well, it was a bank.

I used mugs with teddy bears on them for the mosaic.

He was sitting on my shelf for about 2 months, ungrouted, and decided it was time to finish him.

Enjoy!

Cutest bears within a bear but I especially like his big Green Eyes they look so sweet you just want to give him a hug!

Using the bear mugs was a great idea. I like the green eyes and the pink grout too.

Awwwww, he is just delightful and you are so smart to use the bear mugs to do him. I haven't thought about using mugs for mosaics, and they are usually the cheapest thing at TSs and GSs. Great idea.

Wonder a clever idea to use teddy bear patterns for a teddy bear! And you did an outstanding job of recreating the teddy bear patterns. I have broken up patterned pieces like that and then had a heck of a time getting them back in place. lol! Or is that just my ineptitude? Where did you find the eyes for him?

Thanks everyone!

Jeanne, I did the bear over summer, along with a couple of pots that I've yet to take pics of. I've been very bad by not showing you guys what I've been up to!

Luna, the eyes are those half marbles. I almost always put my patterns back together again. Must be the Humpty Dumpty syndrome!

Indylisa, I have no idea how long but quite awhile since I only work on my mosaics for about two hours a night while I watch TV. And no, I haven't named him because I'm thinking of selling him along with some mosaiced pots I've done. I found a place where they said they would buy my pots and I'm thinking of asking if they'd like him, too.
