is a real old fashioned teddy bear just made for hugs. He is 14 inches
tall and made out of the softest Schulte mohair. He is fully jointed,
has premium glass eyes, wool felt paw pads and is polly/pellet filled.
He wears a WW11 medal for Good Behavior.
I began making teddy bears in 1996 and started
designing my own in 1997. Initially working in acrylic ( I didn't know
anything about other fabrics then), I moved onto mohair almost
immediately and have never looked back.
My teddies range in
size from 6 inches to 24 inches. I love scouring antique shops, flea
markets and even yard sales for that extra special accessory.
have always been "crafty" and over the years have dabbled in
all sorts of crafts and sewing has been a part of my life since I was
a young girl. However, I have no idea where my love of teddy bears has
come from. I never had them as a child nor am I a true collector now.
I just know that I love to bring those little faces into the world.
Most of my creations are one-of-a-kinds, although I am beginning to do
very small limited editions.
I currently sell my bears
through teddy bear, doll and teddy bear and better craft shows and
also through "Just Bears" on Bellair St. in Toronto's
Yorkville district, and of course, through my website.
