Some time ago I said I was going to make a new bearhouse as I had found "something" special for a bearhouse and got inspiration. Well, to be honest, it is still laying in my cabinet.....and I've really been thinking about it a lot.....but decided to give it some more time.
However! Last Friday I found something else! Bingo! I LOVE it!
It is what I call a book-box. Made from wood and covered with a plastic layer I think. Not sure. My first thought was: what to do with it? As usual I slept a night over this question and got an idea.
|The book-box. I fell for the print. It challenged me to make something inside......most of the time I get inspired by using or seeing colours......|
|This is what I started with; I used mini-fabric and mohair and glued it into the box|
|Here you can see there have been decorations added: metal beads and handmade Murano glass-beads from my very dear friend; there is a sky-line.|
|the other side.....mini-fabric again and some plastic beads|
|I had to do something about the sky-line and this is what I did: trees.....|
|the other side again. I need something for a towel or so.......and bought 2 wooden beads in a square shape; I added a piece of a sate-stick and glued it together. There are some paper roses too now!|
|this is what it looks like at this moment.|
This bearhouse is so much fun to make and design!
If you want to follow this project please come back in a couple of days to see the progress!
Thank you for your visit! Bear waiting!

|happy chap again! I should be happy too if I should go to the "beach-bearhouse"!|
|Bear.....wearing a safety belt, stand alone|
|The book-box doesn't stay closed itself. Magnets were to thick so finally I decided to give it some lace with decorations; it can be taken off easily. Could be I'll change this if I find something better!|
|there are some decorations in the left corner: Murano glass-beads and stones, a bucket with "sand" and I made a little scoop from a piece of wood and wool-felt.|
|and embroidered towel.....|
|is the water cold??????|
