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:)

Sydney

by Karen Alderson

Size: 6cm/2.5”


Price: $ 100.00
(Australian Dollars)

Sydney is a special girl. Named after my hometown, every cent from her sale will be donated to a charity helping the injured koalas after the recent awful bushfires we have had in Australia ( koalasincare.org.au ) You may have seen some sad news stories about it. Sadly the fires are still burning and there’s many koalas still in need of help. Even the postage paid will be donated.
Sydney is hand stitched from extra long pile mini velvet and has five cotter pin and disc joints. She is filled with pure wool and steel shot. Her big eyes are German glass and they are framed with long lashes. Her big fluffy koala ears are adorned with pink silk bows.
I’d love Sydney to find a new adopted home and help out the wonderful people looking after the injured koalas.
