Penny has been adopted.
Thank you Betty.
Happy Friday Everyone!
I thought I would pop in and show you what I have been creating lately.
1st is my newest burlap bear.
She is a big one.
She measures approx. 24” tall.
She is a Large, primitive, handmade, teddy bear.
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 is made completely of burlap to give her the appearance that all of her fur has been loved away.
She is stuffed with old quilt batting and rags.
Which gives her a wonderful lumpy feel to her.
She was made to look Old, Worn, and well loved.
Including little prim patches and primitive repaired spots here and there.
I dressed Penny in a simple dress, made from reproduction black and brown homespun.
Over that I placed a true vintage old baby slip.
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 Penny, like all of my bears, is a One Of A Kind creation.
She will come signed and dated.
She also will come with a hang tag stating she is a one of a kind creation, handmade by me.

I also have been creating some pillows out of vintage burlap feed sacks.
These are Large pillows.
And have wonderful graphics.
Perfect for any primitive or farmhouse decor.
I am making more but here are the ones that I finished yesterday.
The back side of the burlap has been lined.
The stuffing does not show through.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend.
