Second NotWork Bear Project

Arts & Crafts, Geek out!

You may remember that I made small felt bear ornaments for the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid. For my second gift item project, I made sachets with the bear logo.

The sachets are filled with organic dried rosemary from Egypt and rice from the USA. They are great for sock drawers, off-season clothing storage or glove compartment. Also, as rice is a natural desiccant, slipping a sachet into your shoes helps keep them fresher longer.

I’m also tickled by a shout-out in File 770. Mike Glyer reported on the craftiness of the Helsinki in 2017 bid, with photos of the cool items that bid supporters have made. I had heard of some of them, but there were several surprises, too. (Helsinki 2017 bear bubble wands, anyone?) The variety is quite impressive; love it! Thanks, Mike! And thank you for the link to my Helsinki in 2017 Flickr album – appreciate your spreading the word.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
