Meet my newest creation, Claira.
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.
Her eyes are made from black, antique style, shoe buttons.
She has a slight hump back design, just like the old ones.
Her dress was primitively made out of true early pillow ticking fabric.
I even made her little prim undies and a bow out of the same ticking fabric.
No glue is ever used on my bears.
Everything is either machine or hand sewn.
All clothing is hand sewn.
She and her clothes have been put through a grubby process to give them that worn prim appearance.
My original creation.
And Claira, like all of my bears, is a One Of A Kind creation.
Claira is listed in my Etsy shop.
