For those of you that know me pretty well, you know that I never, ever make girl bears. It has nothing to do with me not wanting to make females, it just happens that whenever I try to make a girl bear it looks more like a boy in a dress. I've played with different designs and made several attempts over the years, but I think I've finally done it. Today, I am introducing to you all my first little girl bear! Please meet Anna. Anna is a 14.5" bear made out of an ivory mohair with a dusty pink backing. She has black glass eyes with ultrasuede eyelids and eyelashes. Her nose is hand-stitched using brown perle cotton. She has a light pink ultrasuede used on her foot pads. Anna is fully jointed and stuffed with a mixture of polyester fiber and steel shot for weight. She was made using a bent arm and bent leg design which allows her to cross her legs or to sit on an edge (such as a shelf). Her little white dress has a pink ribbon and bow with a vintage green button in the front. She is currently available for $160. I will be bringing her along with all of my new creations (many of which I'm hiding until the show) to TBAI on August 16th - 18th. For more on the show visit www.tbai.org.
Please let me know what you think of Anna in the comment section!
