Clown

but its not from the 'It' movie...

According to a teddy bear encyclopedia I've read, Sears & Co. in the early 20th century distributed clown teddy bears with white heads, pink body and red and blue legs and arms.
I was intriqued by this color scheme.






Clown bear is about 40cm/16 inches tall, 5 way jointed with cotter pin joints. created with hand dyed distressed vintage faux fur, waxed cotton yarn nose. Adorned with madeira lace cuff, hand embroidered clown cap, satin ribbon bow and jingles. He's heavy as was stuffed with leftover fabric scraps and glass pebbles, he's ECO friendly.


Forget-me-not


I was four, maybe five. I remember my mom gardening in the front yard.
"What's the name of those tiny blue flowers?" -I asked.
"Forget-me-nots, dear."- She said.
"They have the colour of Your eyes."
Then she smiled.





Forget-me-not is about 40cm/16 inches tall, 5 way jointed with cotter pin joints. created with hand dyed vintage faux fur, leather nose, cotton yarn. Gently shaded, and adorned with satin ribbon forget-me-not flower embroidery and a bow. He's a heavy, firmly stuffed bear, filled with fabric scraps and glass pebbles, he's an ECO friendly bear.

Forget-me-not was a Birthday gift for my Mom.

Let's find the bear!



This little chap is about 30cm/12 inches tall, 5 way jointed with cotter pin joints. created with faux fur, leather nose, cotton yarn. Gently shaded, and adorned with satin ribbon bow and a jingle. He's rather heavy as was stuffed with leftover fabric scraps and glass pebbles, thus he's an ECO friendly bear.

After Easter

Let me introduce you a hare with an attitude:

He is five-way jointed with cotter pins and hardboard discs. He was created with faux suede paw pads and vintage faux fur. The latter has been carefully sanitized, comes from a pet and smoke free home and has been hand dyed and distressed by me. The features of his face were given with cotton embroidery, plastic sew-in button eyes and gentle shading. His belly is adorned with satin ribbon embroidery sunflowers. Cca. 40cm/16".

A Lady is a Lady, a Gent is a Gent...

... even if they happen to be hedgehogs.
