Our little rainbow lady


This sweet little lady is 'Candy' - so named by her new mum. She was commisioned to use up the very last of our long pile alpaca fur and our rainbow-tipped faux fur. I am so happy with how she turned out too! (And I bet you'd never guess that this was our 'Alivia' pattern reduced down from 20" to 12" either would you! The fur makes all the difference when making bears).

Another gorgeous baby bear


Just a super quick blog post tonight - just to show off this stunning little custom baby bear we completed today. This little boy was designed to be the same length and weight as his commisioning collector's baby when he was born. He was also built to fit that stunning plush teddy bear romper. He ended up with the sweetest little face as well!

I do love the baby bears with their heavy, floppy heads and cuddly bodies!

Einstein


Check out this chubby little bubby! This little fellow is 'Einstein' - a special custom order we had earlier this week. The idea was to make a patch-work bear with as many bright colours of mohair as we could. This little guy was the result. I don't often struggle to send the bears on their way to their new homes... but this little guy was just a bit harder to let go!

Pinks and Purples


These are a couple of custom bears we have been working on over the last week. This big beautiful purple girl is 'Shadow' - as named by her new mum :)

She is made using our multi-version Lyric pattern (using the Panda-option), and our 'Purple Rain' and 'Ace of Spades' imported faux fur. I had never paired these two fabrics together before and am really pleased with the result. My photos wash her out way more then I'd like - this purple is RICH and DARK.






Amd this little lady below is 'Bella' - also named by her new mum. She is made using our pink 'Coconut Ice' faux fur and more of the black 'Ace of Spades' fur. Again in a panda style. This girl is a very petite 9" tall  - just perfect to sit on the palm of your hand :)
We don't have a pattern released for her though, sorry.

Baby Jackson James



Name: Jackson James
Born: 16/03/15 
Time: 11:22am
Weight: 5 lb 9oz
Length: 18"



This little sweetheart was just completed this morning. He's ever so slightly longer then my regular baby bear design and has been made to be rather heavy too... (I was day dreaming a bit while stuffing and filling him!). So he's probably one of the closest bears I've made to a full-size healthy newborn *human* baby. His little face gets me everytime - those big sad eyes and the droopy ears.

Baby Jackson is currently available for adoption. He is One Of A Kind.

New handpainted glass eyes


We were getting rediculously low on our painted eye stock on the website - and I just had no time to pull them all out and get them painted. But I set aside a few hours during the week and got 7 batches of larger sizes done (16mm, 14mm and 12mm). If you were looking for the larger eyes - you'll find all of these new colours here.

{Please remember though, these are hand painted using lots of layers and different colours, and once they sell I cannot replicate them again exactly which can be a bit disappointing for customers - so it is always best to grab a pair you love when you see it}
