Mark and I got to work on this not-so-little cherub today. We've called her 'Imelda', and she's approx 18" tall (I will admit I haven't actually measured her yet!), VERY heavy and well stuffed with good joints. Just how I like my classic teddies.
She's made in one of my last pieces of hand-dyed mohair from Alison at e-Teddies, but the gorgeous multi-tonal choc hues were throwing off the pink of her dress, and making all my images wrong! lol. (Plus, it was dusk by the time we got her done). So I've '60's styled' her sneak peek image, and plan to get clearer ones in the morning! She will be listed for adoption and will make a stunning addition to a girly, or traditional teddy collection.
