I have decided to give Rin to one of my blogging pals.
Rin is a primitive, handmade (by me), teddy bear.
He measures a little less than 12” tall.
He is made to look old, worn and well loved.
I used an actual old burlap sack for his body.
You can see the sack design on his body, legs, arms, and ears.
Something a Mom might of done years ago if she couldn't afford to buy her child a teddy bear.
She "made-do" with what she had on hand and created it for them.
Now because this was made from an old burlap sack, the weave in the burlap isn't as tight as it is on my usual burlap bears.
His arms and legs are string jointed. Which give them ability to be moved and posed some.
His head is not jointed in any way.
His eyes are made from old black buttons.
He has a hump back design, just like the old ones.
I chose not to dress Rin. I didn't want to cover his old burlap sack design.
No glue is ever used on my bears.
Everything is either machine or hand sewn.
Rin has been put through a grubby process to give him that worn prim appearance.
If you want perfection, my bears are not for you.
But if you want a teddy bear that looks like he has been well loved over many years. Primitively mended and repaired just like Mom would have done. Then you will love my Prim Teddy Bears.
Because all of my bears have that wonderful old, worn, very well loved, appearance.
My original creation.
And Rin, like all of my bears, is a One Of A Kind creation.
