She found a place locally and she learned to do just that! Make her own teddy bears.
"I am pretty fussy when it comes to teddy bears. I am not really a fan of traditional styles and yet, I am not a fan of the weird and wonderful either."
During her classes, she found a style she did like. "I made him fifteen times and everyone I knew got one. I even shrunk this pattern down to miniature size for fun. This is what made me think that if I don't want to make someone else's bears, then I should make my own." So she began created her own miniature bears.
"I will never forget the feeling when I was showing someone what I had created and they said, 'Can I buy it?' I was dumbfounded that someone would want to buy one of my creations."
She still gets like that now and thinks it's so wonderful that people would want something that she made by hand and add her bear to their collection.
"The feeling this gives me is priceless and I never want to lose that feeling. It's pretty overwhelming and humbling."
Becca still makes mostly miniatures along with some larger bears and bunnies, but her heart will always belong to the mini bear. "I love that I can get so much expression into a tiny little face."
Another side of bear making that she counts as a blessing is getting to meet the nicest, most amazingly creative people.
"There are so many wonderful artists here in Perth. So much talent in one place! Not to mention the collectors that I have been lucky enough meet when they adopt one of my bears."
"To meet and be part of these people's lives, I am very grateful for it.
I only hope that one day I can offer my knowledge to those that need it and are finding their way into the bear world like these amazing artists have shown me."
