Finally finished a Teddy Bear


Well, yes, I am the slowest bear maker in the Universe. Probably because I never really call them done . . . I just keep changing how they look and what they wear. This guy was very hard to photograph because of his dark blue mohair, dark eyes and dark embroidery thread. This is his 3rd photo shoot, LOL.

The polka-dots make for a fun background I think and contrast nicely with his dark mohair. Thank you Nancy for the lovely box ~ Multi-purpose : )
I hope to have him listed in my Etsy Shop later this evening.

Hi Karen,

I love your new bear ~ the dark colours are very hard to photograph aren't they.
What is your bears name?

Happy Easter to you and your family.

Just finished browsing through Kovels' Antique Collections and Warman's Collectibles for 2009 and some of those bears look just like yours...priceless! Beautiful work Karen.
Hugs Annabelle

Hi Karen,
I love your bear and the pink collar. They contrast extremely well! I'm sure a new mummy will find him!

Hi Karen...Oh, your bear is wonderful! Love the darker colour. The pink around the neck is very pretty.

Glad I could help!
Hugs, Nancy

Oh, that bear is just darling! Thanks for sharing! Sorry to hear that Cider's leg is healing so slow in your previous post.

You are SO talented Karen, he is gorgeous!!!!!
I know what you mean about taking photos, my puppy is all black and it is so so hard to get a good photo of him.
