For the moment, I'm preparing teddies for the 2 online shows in August.

Last month, I followed a class, with the artist Lylia.  She showed us the way to make a dress on measures....Not easy for someone who did not like mathematics in her young time, but the class was very interesting.

It was my fourth class and I enjoyed it so much. I received a fourth diploma.

I restarted also sculpting mini babies in polymer clay.  A few years ago, I was running Lullaby Nursery and I decided to reopen it.

A few pictures of my past creations, all by hand and no molds.

And now 1 teddie as preview of future shows....




This year, I will participate to a few online shows and I decided to split my teddy bears in 2 editions,one for the fabric teddies and another one for the thread teddies.


Until now, it works but I needed to apply a schedule. A part of my work time for the fabric ones and another part for the thread ones.

If I will follow the schedule, perhaps, we will see LOL


And I would  like to show you my thread teddies because I'm still working on my big size babies.

A new little one in Chantal Bears Creations : Pandy.



Updated : March 6th 2012

I have to pull the Ebooklet from the market because of people misunderstanding the idea of the booklet ; they wanted a pattern included in it; however, because the technique is available for all types of teddy bears in thread,yarn, knitted or crochet, I did not add a specific pattern which was well explained in the item description. People could used it on other patterns from other artists but it looks like the new idea was not understood by some....

I plan to add the personal technique in the book I'm writing now that will most likely be published next year where it will include patterns and "how to".

I'm feeling sorry for that, but I had to take this decision to avoid further problems which are taking time from my beloved teddy bears and eating up the much needed time for the book. If you are still interested to buy the "how to" ... of course NOT including the pattern please feel free to contact me.


A New EBooklet released today

I received a large request from people asking me how I could give personality to my teddy bears....
Finally, I wrote a new booklet containing 14 pages and 36 pictures showing "how to"
I hope that little booklet will help a lot of people making teddy bears !!!!!



Updated February 14th 2012.

NEW !!!!!!!!!!

A new Ebook from Chantal Bears will be released in a few days,

My new Creation for Josiane

< width="600">< value=""><!-- value="always"--><!-- value="transparent"--><!-- value="true"--><!-- value=""--><!-- value=""--><!-- src="" height="480" width="600"--><!-- href=""-->


Canadian artist Chantal Giroux did this teddy bear piece just for our article.


Our next artist, Chantal Giroux, is an active member of Bears&Buds and makes her home to our north in Saint Johns, New Brunswick Canada. 

This delightful teddy bear artist was attracted to teddy bears right from her childhood, and they remain her passion today. 

Her daughter Laura, who is also a teddy bear artist, is quick to praise her mother’s talents. 

Chantal’s work includes her expressions in knitting, crochet, tatting, painting, embroidery and a long list of other forms of creating amazing teddy bears. 

Daughter Laura says “Mom made her first crochet bear about 7 years ago, and I still have it! Bear making is not a job for her; it is her life.” 

Take a look at Chantal’s other creations too.
