She is my newest burlap bear creation.
Gretta is also another make- do bear.
For her base I used an old wooden handled cookie cutter.
She measures approx. 10.5" tall.
She has a hump back design, just like the old ones
Gretta's body was made from a vintage burlap feed sack.
She is completely rag stuffed (burlap remnants).
She is not jointed in any way.
I used vintage fabrics for her clothing.
Her little shawl was made from a piece of an antique blue coverlet.
In her hands she holds a little pin cushion, which I made from old red and white striped ticking fabric.
Gretta has antique shoe button eyes and hand stitched facial features.
She and her clothing has been put through an aging process to give her that wonderful, old, prim, appearance.
I use burlap for the body, to give the appearance that all of her fur has been loved away.
My original creation.
Gretta, like all of my bears, is One Of A Kind creation.
She will come with a hang tag stating my name and that she is a One of a Kind creation.
Gretta is currently listed in my Etsy shop.
