Jillian ~ My Newest Teddy Bear

Meet my newest creation, Jillian.
She is a primitive, handmade, teddy bear.

She measures approx. 13" tall.
She is made to look old, worn and well loved.

I used burlap for his body, to give her the appearance that all of her fur has been loved away.

She is completely stuffed with old cotton seed quilt batting.

Her arms are string jointed. Which give them ability to be moved and posed some.
Her head is not jointed in any way.

She has a hump back design, just like the old ones.

Her dress was primitively made out of true early pillow ticking fabric. Her bloomers were made out of old plain flour sack fabric.

She comes with the little pillow shown in photos.
It was made out old ticking fabric on front and a coordinating fabric on back.

The pillow measures approx. 5" by 4", and it was also stuffed with old cotton quilt batting.

She and her clothes have been put through a grubby process to give them that worn prim appearance.

And Jillian, like all of my bears, is a One Of A Kind creation.

IMO, she looks even better in person. 

I am very proud of the way she turned out.

I dont know what is going on with Live Writer. Making certain lines really tiny!!

Jillian has just been adopted!
Thanks so much Teresa!

Thanks so much,
