This gorgeous big girl is a custom order we completed earlier this month (and totally forgot to share!). She is made using our 'Fat Panda' pattern and some of our very, VERY dense faux fur - which just gives her an even FATTER look! She was named Calypso by her new mum - which seriously suits her!

This past weekend was all about School Holiday fun. We took the kids to see the new 'Secret life of Pets' move at the cinema, and then for a play in the park and some yummy takeaway lunch afterwards. After they were in bed I was able to get a bit more work done of these two custom orders. Both have been adopted now, but we do have kits available as they were also both made as fur-example pieces :)
The little lady below has been made in our new 'Pastel Puff' faux fur, and our 12" Sugar pattern. We have kits available for her in our etsy store. We have a decent amount of the Pastel Puff fur in stock, but not so much of the rainbow fur used to make 'Funfetti' below...
...this is Funfetti. He has been made using our new 'Funfetti' rainbow splashed faux fur, and our 16" Lyric pattern. We also have kits available for him (until this rainbow fur is sold out anyways!).
I will add the disclaimer that your bear may not end up looking EXACTLY like our example Pastel Puff and Funfetti bears though. Each handmade bear will end up being unique due to a series of small decisions you make during the creating process. Even if we made more of these two tomorrow, the colour placement would be different, the nose would likely end up slightly larger or smaller, the eyes might end up slightly closer together - or slightly further apart.
Making an artist bear is kind of like picking up a 'choose-your-own adventure' novel. Each step in the process will impact on the next one, culminating in your own unique teddy at the end! And I can't wait to see YOURS!

This sweet boy is a 'just because' bear. I Loved the look of this hand-dyed mohair next to this silky spotted faux fur, and just had to make a bear out of the combo.
He's a chunky 22" tall and is made using a 75% reduction of our Jumbo pattern. His mohair (head and body) is made from a piece of our 27mm super curls Schulte mohair, hand-dyed a soft seafoam grey/green.
Cobbles is now available for adoption on our website.

These two sweethearts have JUST been completed today. They have been made from a piece of our newly dyed rainbow mohair (that we talked about in our last post). It gives you a great idea of how beautifully the rainbow mohair can look when made up into a bear. Especially a gorgeous, girly feminine bear, or two ;)
We've called these two 'Pearl Pumpkinmoon' (She's the larger of the two, standing in at 22"), and 'Jem Jellypebble' (who is the smaller of the two standing in at 17"). Both girls are now on eBay for 3 day auctions to try and give our collectors all over the world a chance to bid if interested.
