Just popping in to show off my newest teddy bear….
Meet Betty Bear!
She is a primitive, handmade, teddy bear.
She measures approx. 13" tall.
She is made to look old, worn and well loved.
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 hump back design, just like the old ones.
Her dress was made out of a piece an antique quilt.
The patches that can be seen on her ear, arm, and foot are from the same antique quilt.
I made this bear a little differently, filling her bottom up to her belly with sand.
This gives her a wonderful and weighted feel to her.
No glue is ever used on my bears.
Everything is either machine or hand sewn.
She and her clothes have been put through a grubby process to give them that worn prim appearance.
My original creation.
And Betty, like all of my bears, is a One Of A Kind creation.

Betty has been adopted.
