Handmade bespoke Artisan Teddy Bears and Cross stitch favours
My name is Annie and I am a Granny! I made my very first Teddy Bear during lockdown for my first grandchild. I was going to buy him a special bear, but then decided it would be even more special if I made one for him - and with all the time lockdown afforded me, I got sewing!
And thats how it started... I am now completely hooked on making bears in ever shape, size and colour - each one is different, unique and has its own personality. They are all made using traditional methods out of top quality mohair, some of which is hand dyed. All their eyes are glass, some have glass noses, some have growlers, a very few have music boxes and all have traditional joints.
Any bear can be made in any colour, either ready made or in a colour of your choice, depending on available mohair. Each bear takes between a week - 2 weeks to make, depending on their size. The smaller ones can have squeakers, the larger ones a growler, and a music box in the very largest.
I also do personalised Cross stitch favours and pictures, for weddings, birthday, anniversaries, ANY event! Large or small, almost any design possible from logos to hobbies to careers. I personally design the images to fit within the framework and all the sewing is done by me! I have recently down favours for 2 weddings, making a different small hooped picture for every single guest, each one fitting to the recipient as detailed by the bride and groom.
