The Saffron Woven Teddy Bears invited some wooden teddy bears and tiny woven bears to have an adventure with them, and then to join them for a picnic.
They climbed onto some tractors and into some wagons and even a bulldozer to ramble off to the picnic place.
The tiny Blue Bear of Happiness was thrilled to drive the clockwork tractor, but found changing the gears was challenging and sent the passengers tumbling a few times.
They didn’t mind, in fact it was kind of fun.
Jimmy Bear drove the larger tractor with style and his passengers enjoyed the ride in the various trailers, carts and chariots, but did find the heat to be rather intense. (
It was blisteringly hot!)
A bulldozer was the ride of choice for a few of the Pandas and their friend….
All the bears sang ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ at the top of their lungs.
Sadly, the carved wooden teddys found the heat to be un-bearable, so they scampered back into the studio and sat in front of the fan to cool off.
The woven Saffron Bears were perfectly happy in their sun hats, so the sun didn’t bother them.
Jimmy Bear played his guitar and all the other bears loved it.
Two of the bears had brought along a telescope to watch birds, but were able to keep an eye on their carved wooden friends to make sure they made it safely back to the studio.
Only one of the bears had remembered to bring a parasol, but shared it when anyone need a little rest from the sun.
The pandas wondered if the grass might taste like bamboo, but the hot sun had dried it out so much that they decided to not sample it.
And two little bears leaned back in their folding chair and quietly dozed off right after this picture was taken.
The tiniest bears were so glad that someone had remembered to bring their travelling bed along and after some giggling and wiggling, they fell asleep, too….
While the Blue Bear of Happiness and Wee Brown Bear enjoyed the shade of their umbrella.
All in all, it was a fine afternoon on an incredibly hot and sunny summer day.
I designed and wove all the Teddy Bears for the Mirrix Summer Weaving Challenge 2022.
The Saffron Bears were all woven on the Mirrix Saffron Loom.
The tiny Bears were woven on the Baby Duo looms from Hello! Looms.
All the ‘how to’ links to the videos for the step by step process of weaving all the looms are listed on
L I N K ( Note: They will be added one by one through the week of August 8 to 15, 2022 and will remain available once they have been released, so there is no time limit on getting the weaving done.)
Happy Weaving! And, may the teddy bears bring you delight!
