Getting ready for Hugglets February 26th 2017 and a new bear!

There are only 6 weeks left until the biggest bear fair in the UK and that is Hugglets which is held on February 26th 2017 in Kensington, London.I will be in the basement on stand 108 and Buster Bear will be coming with me along with many other bears to choose from and should be around 16 inches high when finished.
I have just finished the little 3.5 inch panda and his name is Dudley and he is listed for sale on Bearpile and here is his link

It has been a long time since I used my blog but I have decided to give up my website and just use this blog instead for when I have a new bear for sale or any latest news updates.I will also use my facebook page for updates(find me on the Laurie Lou Bears page) and Bearpile.
I have a regular page  on Bearpile where you can see all my latest bears for sale and purchase them.You can contact me on Bear Pile to purchase a bear or make an immediate paypal payment on them if you wish to buy them.Here is the link to my page
I will be exhibiting at one show this year which is Hugglets Teddies 2016 and that is in Kensington in London on Sunday September 11th 2016.There are 170 exhibitors so plenty of bears to see and my stand will be in the basement and is number 112.The show opens at 10.30 and closes at 4pm.Here is the link to the show
I have added a few photos of my latest bears for sale for you to see.

Hugglets Preview

Just a few bears to show you that I am taking to Hugglets tomorrow.Would have liked to have made a few more for the show but time is always running away from me and there are never enough hours to    do what I want to do in a day.These are a new size for me and are around 8.5 inches high.

I have just received confirmation that I will be attending the Teddies Worldwide Christmas show.I have attended the spring show more than a few times but have never been fortunate to get into the Christmas Show as there is a selection process with these shows and many artists put in applications and there are only 75 places.I can't wait to get started on some bears as I have never made any themed bears in my 8 years of bear making so this will be a first for me.I have ideas already for bears so it is just putting them into practice.Firstly though I really need to get on with my Hugglets bears for September as there are only 8 weeks left to go and I haven't made a single thing.Winter is easier for me for my bear making as it gets dark early and it is easier to curl up indoors and sew but this time of the year is hopeless for me as there are too many distractions with the lovely weather and light evenings.Today the weather is very hot in Norfolk so I will be glad to sit down indoors where it is cooler and stuff a bear head that has sat patiently waiting for much too long :0)

New Bear for sale!!!

I am busy as a bee in the winter months making bears for Hugglets and the Teddies Worldwide online show in March but as soon as I don't have any deadlines to meet and spring arrives my bear making goes to pot.It is so easy for me to get distracted with other things when we have more day light hours such as walking dogs,decorating etc.The trouble is with working in my other job too and my children and pets to look after what little time I have left to make bears just disappears.I now have 2 commission bears to make for a wedding in July and I want to enter a competition or two so I really need to get on.There is also the Hugglets show  in September which seems a long way off but the speed in which I work means I need to start now lol!
Anyway I do have this sweet little bear called Thornton and he is 4.25 inches high and is priced at £60 with £5 uk postage and £7 overseas postage(full insurance).You can contact me at or take a look at my website
