www.curiousmondo.com has a class I taught in how to make one of my bunnies!
I demonstrate from start to finish how these bunnies come into being! Hop on over and purchase the class to get tons of info on how to create artist bears and animals!

Welcome to my selection of Quality and Collectible Handcrafted Artist Teddy Bears and animals, One of a Kind Creations, plushies, patterns and needle felting. I have been honored with a 2015 First place award in the ITBAA competition. as well as a 2017 Industry's choice and Public's choice TOBY awards for my bears. I have been published in Teddy Bear Times and Teddy Bear and Friends magazine and Bears and Buds online magazine. I have received an Excellent Recognition Award from the Bristol Bear Awards, a 2018 Industry and Publics Choice TOBY award, 2018 Recognition of Bear Making Excellence award, and 2019 Industry choice TOBY award. TOBY is the Teddy Bear of the Year recognition. I have added to the list since then.

All of the items I make are made by hand so they take a long time to make- on average at least a week for a bear. I use top quality materials. What I make is not available in any mass market store, my time and energy creates a unique one of a kind item for you- something only you will have as there will never be another exactly the same. My bears are meant for the collectible market and are not for play. They are soft fabric sculpture and not toys.

I work to my high standards and make my items to last. I appreciate high quality and since I am a small scale production (i.e. just me :)) I can make sure each item is created with quality. I want you to absolutely love what you have purchased and keep it forever, or if giving it as a gift- to love what you have given someone else. Please note that my creations are not meant for children that will be rough with them, or still chew on their toys. I use top quality glass eyes or taxidermy eyes that are sewn into place using sinew or waxed linen thread. A determined chewer will get them out and that could be a choking hazard. I do make bears for young children- but only when asked, so don't be shy about contacting me! I want you to appreciate the value inherent in a handmade piece of a truly one of a kind item. Even my limited editions come out as a unique animal each time!

Thank you for stopping by to look!
