***Brand new antique style bear designs coming soon***

I have been busy again working on new designs once again!I am focusing on traditional antique style bears ranging in wee sizes of 5.5"and 6" along with 7&8 inch larger sizes.The little old style bears shown with dolly are made from felt(left)and mohair(right).They feature my signature one piece body style with the look of being jointed(not an easy task lol!)I just love the way they turned out and will be focusing on this main style from now on,along with some of my older prim jointed styles.Also in progress is 2 terrier style dogs,one like Toto from the wizard of oz,and the other a shaggy wire haired variety.there is also a pink shabby kitty and panda bear.I will be back with more pics once they are completed.~~~~HugsxxxxSharie~~~~(please note I had to erase my first post because blogger went haywire!so sorry about that)

~~Been Busy!~~Consumed with new designs~~

It's been sooo long since my last post,but as you can see I have been totally consumed with brand new designs!Once the ~design bug~hits,I find weeks can fly by without notice.As a former dollmaker I always loved the antique style cloth dolls and have tried many times to incorporate this style into my bear designs.I think I finally have the look I have strived for in this new design.I broke it down into two styles one being an art doll teddy design with the muslin body shaped into dress styles for the girls and pants styles for the boys with the body being painted/antiqued to resemble clothing.the second was a bit more tricky painting and staining directly onto mohair fur.All of these styles are small bears&friends measuring 6" 5.5" 5" and the smallest(in my hand)4.5" The first batch I attempted was a little larger measuring 8-10 inches tall,a bit too big for the size I wanted.As you can tell by the gang in the pic below I have also been working on other styles of bears also in progress lol.I really love the new look of this design and hope you like them also.~~~~Hugs!~~~Sharie **I forgot to mention these are still a work in progress,not available for adoption until they are completed.I will update again with new pics once they are completely finishes :>)**

It's been awhile since I had the chance to get any new bears and friends listed but I am happy to share the gang who...
