Filled with glass sand for added weight. Verity stands 4.5" ~ 11.5cm Verity is wearing a vintage cotton lawn pale pink dress with gorgeous strawberries & leaf pattern, hand sewn sew by myself. The dress is designed to look oversized & I have aged the dress to give an authentic look of bygone day teddy bears with a lavender stain, she has a matching bow in her hair. I also added vintage lace. Verity is wearing a pretty deep red love heart around her neck. The cart has been handmade by my husband & filled with gorgeous strawberries!|

|4th Place||Aygül||The Jaded Bearsmith||I have named her Aygül which means "moon rose" in Turkish. Her pink alpaca fur is very soft to touch and features a beautful contrasting brown base. Soft brown felt spines run from the top of her neck to the tip of her tail. Aygül features beautiful handpainted glass eyes in sparkly orange and copper tones. In place of "eye whites" Aygül has eye blacks in black glitter wool felt. She also has a handsculpted polymer clay nose in pink and black swirls that glitter in the light. Her wings are posable and also made of pink alpaca on the outside and chocolate coloured suede on the inside. This suede also features in her inner ears. Aygüls tail is weighted with glass which helps to make her more posable while her body is softly stuffed with polyester. Aygül has been uniquely designed and handmade by The Jaded Bearsmith|
