Now Sold

Ted is now SoldA little miniature of what I think teddy bears are all about . Ted is only 2 & 3/4" tall  but I think he has all the characteristics of a much bigger bear. He is made from blonde mohair with ultra suede paws. He has lovely brown glass eyes and an embroidered waxed nose.He is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears, and steel shot in his body for added weight. I have added shading  and some plucking for a "well loved" look and he comes wearing a little rusty dome shaped bell 

Just a little note to non bear makers . Cotterpin jointing and turning of the fabric of miniature bears is no easy thing as with trying to get the character of a big bear's face in miniature. And as they are all hand stitched they very often take much  longer than large bears to make
