Bears and Ears

This little one was jumping around my work table earlier today, begging me to sew on his ears.
I always put it off till the very last,  as I never get it right the first time.





His name is Peety and he will be listed on http://www.bearpile.com/artist/1725 tomorrow.

Sweet Mini Bears

Creating sweet faced mini bears is such fun.  I have a few in various stages of completion on my work table and I love seeing their cute little faces when I enter my studio in the mornings.




This is the latest of the mini family,  Dylo.  He found a cozy bed in a doll shoe.




Dylo is a tiny 3.5" and created from a soft grey viscose.

Tired Dogs and Sweet Brown Bears


I love country living and Fall is my absolute favorite time of year... I just need this time to slow down after hectic, hot and humid summer days.  The air smell sweet and I enjoy going for long walks with Jackie and Lucy.  Well… Luce only goes half way before she begs to be carried.  Recently, while cleaning out the basement of stuff that I don’t know why I kept all these years, even relocate from one continent to another with it,  I discovered my now teenage son’s  baby carrier.  It is an ideal doggie carrier for the Missy. 



The result of all the fresh air!




Lucy’s sweet little face is my inspiration for all my teddy bears.  Mandy is a cute chubby 6 inch girly bear and was created from a silvery tip, caramel and chocolate brown faux fur.   This is my first 'brown bear', and I think I like the look.

Crazy Bear Mother


Sometimes I really drive myself totally crazy.  Why is it that when I have just packed and sealed a teddy bear, all ready for shipping, I suddenly started to panic that I have left a pin of two in the teddy body, or maybe have forgotten to sew on the ears?!





I hope Banji’s new mom doesn’t discover an ear-less, needle-pinned teddy when she arrives.  I love Banji...  she has the sweet, baby-like and innocent kind of face, that I want all my teddies have.

Winter Colors


This cutie spent the long summer days with me in my studio.  My son called him sweet but boring.  Normally I feel quiet comfortable with 'boring' but I thought I'll give this little one a bit of a color lift in the form of an oversized hat. With winter coming and everything, he will need it.
Fuzzle is a 3.5 inch sweetie-pie and he now has the approval of a certain teenager.
