Please meet Lavender-the newest cub born in the Windy City!
She is completely one of a kind.
Lavender was sewn using a luxurious long pile faux fur in a gorgeous lavender shade with black guard hairs. She has ultrasuede paws and inner ears. She sits comfortably at ten inches and stands at 14inches with help. She's been scissor sculpted and shaded for her unique look. She is five way locknut jointed.
Lavender has German glass eyes and is five way jointed for posing. She's stuffed with firm polyfil and stainless pellets for weight. Her toes are needlefelted.
She'll arrive carefully packaged at her new home with a signed and dated hangtag. OOAK.
She is not suitable for small children due to small parts.
Bear hugs and thanks for looking!
Chicago Bear Co
It started about ten years ago... I found a book about teddy bear making one long and awful winter, and from that moment I was hooked!
I use the best quality materials to make each bear, whether it's Schulte mohair, or Corriedale wool. Recently I started needlefelting bears, a process of taking wool fibers and sculpting them using a barbed needle. A great way to take out some pent up frustration!
Supporting the handmade /artisan industry is vital to me. Coming from a very long line of artisans,crafters, musicians, and other creative types keeps me keenly aware how important the creative arts are. I buy and support local and handmade as often as I can.
I have won two URSA awards, the most recent being in 2017, for my bears, and even was featured on HGTV's That's Clever!- an old show about artists and crafters.
I hope you enjoy my work- it is truly my passion!
From my hug to yours,
