I am going to be heading down to Tampa, FL for a teddy bear show this weekend put on by Bright Star Promotions. The show is this Sunday, February 19th from 9:30 - 3:00 at the Crown Plaza Westshore. For more information on how to get there and who else will be showing their bears click here.
I currently have 19 pieces ready for the show and I'm hoping to finish one more this week. The last piece I finished is a brand new elephant design. Her name is Elina and she's pictured below. She's an 11" elephant made out of a hand tie-dyed purple and gray mohair. Her inner ears are made of a purple fabric with little butterflies on it. She has black glass eyes that have hand-shaded lavender upper eyelids and I also added the 'whites' to her eyes on the bottom. She is fully jointed and stuffed with a mixture of polyester fiber and steel shot. I'll have her with me at the show, and she's available for $105.
I hope to see you at the show!
