Custom Heirloom Teddy

Custom Heirloom Teddy Bear for Barbara
(created from her family heirloom fur stole)

Barbara's real fur stole was not a ranch mink, the fur
that I traditional use for my teddies, but this was a much
softer fur yet still one that I knew I could scissor sculpt
to create a sweet face. I adjusted my pattern just a little
and I am so happy that I did because I think that this 
teddy's face is just irresistibly charming !!!

Features of this Custom Teddy:

  • Hand-stitched vintage real fur (from a brown fur stole)
  • paw pads from lining of fur stole
  • Glass eyes
  • Embroidered, waxed, and sealed nose
  • Wire armature in limbs for gentle posing
  • 6 joints included a double jointed neck (for a charming head tilt)
  • Gently hand painted details
  • Stands 10 1/2 inches tall and 8 inches sitting

This teddy is just so sweet that 

I took lots of photos ....
