This is my newest creation...Livia.
I see she has some glitter on her feet...I wonder if she was dancing in the glitter while I was sleeping last night. She looks a little guilty ..;)
She meaures a tiny 2.5 inches standing. She was hand sewn from long pile dark brown sassy bear fabric.  I hand crafted her glittery wings. She is weighted and can stand on her toes with a bit of assistance..But as long as no gusts of wind come along.

This is little Petunia..I made her for someone dear to my heart. ..Actually she was a bribe. ;)
As a nurse I see so many unfortunate people. I met a young woman with cervical cancer..25 and terminal. She will leave behind two small children.
I texted the person dear to my heart and asked her if she had been to the gynecologist.
"not in about 10 years" she said.
So I made a deal..."you go to the doctor and I will send you a bear"
So little Petunia arrived to her new home and I have one less thing to worry about.

Little Fiona

I love her little expression. I hand sewed her little dress.
Thought is would be easier than trying to figure out the sewing machine. :0/
Not sure if I need a newer one...but the one I have leaves me frustrated and cursing under my breath.

Lilah & Louie

The color of this bear is a little on the wild side for me ;) I prefer natural colored bears. But the fabric was staring at I thought 'What the heck'.. So after hours of sewing ..stuffing and scissor trimming...out came little Lilah. I made her some fancy glittery wings and a little needle felted friend Louie.
I am so smitten that I may just have to buy some more fabric in a rainbow of colors.... =)
Hope you like them. I have listed them on BearPile

New Design...A Miniature SKUNK.. PePe

A tiny little Skunk. He measures 2.25 inches standing and 2 inches sitting. My pattern resembled a dinosaur ..I was doodling on some paper and out came little Skunky (aka PePe) . I had just enough black fabric ... It is a lovely long pile vintage piece and I used a slightly longer fabric for the white. I gave have him curved wired paws. A white belly.. A two tone tail. White accented eyes. Brown ultrasuded foot pads and a brown hand embroidered nose. He is difficult to photograph due to his size and color but I hope you can appreciate his detailing.

New design... Needle felted and clay baby monkey.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately ..probably too much.. But I was thinking about my favorite childhood stuffed animal.. It is similar to a munchichi. This little monkey could suck his thumb...and obviously I did that too much as the plastic is torn near its mouth.
A few years ago I was determined to find this little monkey...I did internet and ebay searches and could not find one exactly  like him. My brother would find similar ones and give them to me as gifts. Then on my birthday my dad presented me with my long lost little monkey. He had been hiding in the crawl space of the home I grew up in.  Happily  reunited he now sleeps in my bed every night.
Inspired by him..I made my little bear one. It is a new design of half clay and half needle felting.
the little monkey measues 1.5 inches.
