About

Why Teddy Bears?

I have loved and collected teddy bears my whole life. Being born with the last name of Bear, how could I not be attracted to the soft and fuzzy teddy bears of childhood to the figurines that now fill my shelves. I look at a teddy bear and just Feel Good!! They bring back a lot of fond memories.
The first time I dressed a jointed teddy bear I was looking to make a unique baby gift. I put some clothes on the bear, but it needed something else. I added small wooden alphabet blocks to spell out the baby's name, and I was hooked on finding ways to make teddy bears a gift for any occasion. I started adding more types of clothing, cross stitch to personalize, and I soon had a business going. I started online with my business in 2000, listened to requests from my customers which added more ideas on how to dress a bear. I had a website for 18 years before closing in June of 2018. On my website, I offered hundreds of styles in many different sizes, for many occasions. Some occasions were: wedding, graduation, birthday, illness, cancer patient encouragement, and holidays. I still offer many of those themes in my Etsy Shop. I chose to close my website as I no longer have a supplier for the largest teddy bears that I used to make the majority of my items. So, I am expanding the themes for the smaller bears and enjoying seeing the themes “come to life”.
I currently use 4 sizes of jointed teddy bears with 2 types of fur. I have a 10 inch white bear, 8 inch white bear, a beige 5 inch bear, and a 3 inch bear in both beige and white. I also offer an 8 inch bear in a more curly hair finish in brown, cream, and white. I have included pictures so you can see the bears and their differences. Currently, I am offering black and white cows as well, in two themes. All of my plush, jointed animals are bought from online suppliers. Many of my designs include cross-stitched messages or personalization. Some come with my original poetry. Besides doing the cross-stitching, I also design and make the clothing.

Did you know? I once had two bears appear in a Hallmark movie, “Undercover Bridesmaid”! Their appearance was very brief, but it was a thrill for me nonetheless.
