FLASHBACK! Eleanor the Elephant

I've been digging through some old pictures of my creations. I've been making bears for 12 years and I've made many different types of bears and other animals. I've decided to share some of them with you every now and then (I'll try to do it once a week). First up is Eleanor. Eleanor was my first elephant design ever. She's made of a great gray and purple tie-dyed mohair with a bow of a similar color. She's special because she made it into an issue of Teddy Bear and Friends, which caused me to develop a couple more of her by special order. (This original Eleanor was a special piece for my grandmother, who collects elephants.)

Have a nice weekend! (And Happy Easter to those who celebrate!)
