Tansy is quite the little lady, standing approx. 8cm small, approx 3”, she is hand stitched from vintage long pile velvet and features 5 cotterpin and disc joints, with wired arms.
Her face is needle and scissor sculpted as well as softly airbrushed to bring out her sweet personality.
Tansy wears a dress of antique French lace with a velvet sash, and a tiny Swiss millinery straw hat I made especially for her, trimmed with vintage cotton netting, vintage flowers, and extravagant feathers to add a final fashionable touch.

Thank you so much for visiting my page. I’m so excited to be back for my second Ebearshow:)
A little about me: I’ve been making bears and other friendly critters since the early 1990s, concentrating on small and miniature bears in recent years. I love to search out special fabrics and trims for each creation wherever I go. My creations have won the TOBY Industry’s Choice award several times, and appeared in magazines in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Germany and the UK, but the most rewarding thing for me is when a wonderful collector adds one of my pieces to their hug:)

Blossom is my largest lady for the show, sitting a whopping 6” small:) Hand stitched from blossom pink German mohair, she has five cotter pin and disc joints and is filled with glass sand and pure wool. Her face is needle and scissor sculpted as well as softly airbrushed, to being out the expression in her German glass eyes and embroidered waxed nose.
I crocheted a little silk cardigan specially for her, with a silk ribbon tie at the round neckline. As you may have guessed, Blossom gets her name from the sweet little vintage Apple blossom flower that adorns her head, topped off with a fluffy bow of vintage millinery veiling
