Well, it's taken me a few weeks, but I finally put the finishing touches to the 3 bears I was working on. One little girl was a custom order - I'm happy to say her new mum was thrilled with her and says she will treasure her forever - my heart sings when my customers love the bears I make for them!
Anyway, there's still 2 available and here they are:
Introducing OREO - a very soft and cuddly 14" panda which I've hand sewn from beige and a rich dark chocolate brown alpaca, with beige airbrushed ultrasuede paws in trapunto style. I've also hand-painted his custom German glass eyes which are set in the same beige ultrasuede as his pads. He wears a hand-knitted collar with contrasting custom bead trim.
This little one is 12" TOPAZ, a very charming and cheeky fellow who has been hand sewn from a wonderful tri-coloured string Shulte mohair in brown/blonde tones. His paws are also done in trapunto style from a copper-coloured ultrasuede and shaded with oil paints. Topaz also has custom hand-painted German glass eyes in sparkling emerald shades to complement his hand-crafted ribbon ruff.
Hope you like them - both OREO and TOPAZ are now available from my website and Bear Pile!
Now ... back to sewing: I'm currently working on a brand-new design which I'll be posting here in the next week so keep an eye out for that!
Until then, take care everyone!
