The angels were much more than I expected. The workmanship is perfect and finished very nicely.....they are just beautiful! They are a bargain at the price. I would gladly purchase from her any time. Angels were packed very well for the long journey. Thank you Anu.

Welcome to Madsbear!!!I am Anupama,the artist behind Madsbear,I sew,crochet,paint,make cards and dabble in jewelry making.

I discovered the world of amigurumi through the internet in 2008 when encouraged by an over indulgent husband I decided to take up crocheting as a hobby,Soon enough,making what other people designed wasnt enough and I had to bring to existence the little people who appeared in my head.Oh,the satisfaction of being to create what I saw in my head... !

My fascination with miniature dolls started with the blown glass miniatures and curios that were in my grandmother's drawing room and the Enid Blyton stories that I read.A thumb sized plastic doll that a generous neighbour gifted me on my birthday brought alive Thumbelina and added fuel to an imagination that already had me thirsting for a glimpse of Brer fox in the shady backyard of my grandmother's house.It really wasn't that farfetched a wish considering foxes made an appearance every night there and all I wanted was for one of them to wear a smart little red coat and peek out at me from behind a tree at a safe distance.

I have been painting and attending painting competitions from the age of three,all credit to my mother.The first card I made was in third grade for my mom's birthday.All I had was a scrap of cardstock and the desire to make something spectacular enough to gain my mom's praise which was a tough task bordering on the impossible even back then.Put together a major lack of supplies and a determined seven year old and I ended up with a card with two leaves from a money plant glued on either side of a piece of the "velvet flower" aka cockscomb which was my favorite flower back then.Yeah!I had taste :D.Today shoe flowers are my favorite.Go figure!

I was in the sixth grade when a story about a girl and her rag doll ignited a burning desire for one of my own.I was not the kind of child who ran to her parents with a request everytime a whim or fancy struck me.I was the type who hankered after it quietly,desperately.So I cut up an old dress,some really old dhoti and found an odd ball of navy blue yarn.I then sewed it up using the backstitch which was the only stitch I knew.My parents were surprised at what I came up with and I was most pleased that I had a rag doll.I didnt even really know what a rag doll looked like but recently I did come across pictures of rag dolls which look remarkably similar to what I made back then.

Amigurumi had its limitations for me in that I couldnt make it small enough or add tiny details.That's when I made my first miniature doll who was the size of my thumb and gifted it to my mother who gushed over it.My doll making skills have grown by leaps and bounds.With the birth of my son,my crocheting interests turned more towards designing toys for babies.I have sold my miniature dolls and my amigurumi patterns to people around the world.The feedback that I have received,the delight and joy that my dolls have brought people has been so rewarding and so humbling especially since I am completely self taught.While I dabble in several crafts,designing dolls and toys,both crocheted and sewn, is where I feel at my element and is the medium that really calls to me as an artist.
