      Little Peter arrived very fast at home. He is a cutie! I can see that he was made with love. I really appreciate the personalized note added to this little boy and the little ball of yarn to make him a little something.
      Fran is a wonderful person as well as her teddies. Thank you very much, Fran, Peter will be treasured.

      I’m so thrilled to have adopted Perry. He is so cute and made with such love and care. The attention to details from the packaging to the yarn to make a tiny scarf are a lovely addition. I love the stamped tag with all the information about Perry. Thank you Fran 💗

      Fran made a bear for my little nephew, and it is just PERFECT. You can sense the personal touch and the love that has been put into making the bear, and it is something you could never get in a store-bought teddy. This is definitely a bear to be treasured for a lifetime. Hope to order more teddies in the future!

    I'm Fran, bear maker & hand spinner, currently living half way up a mountain in the French Pyrénées with my French sweetheart and my growing toddler.

    For as long as I can remember, I have made little bears. As a child then teenager, my bears were made mainly from acrylic fun fur, sometimes wool felt and occasionally calico. Now as a grown woman and mother, I am coming back to this craft and finding a deep satisfaction from taking my time to carefully craft each little bear cub from quality materials which will ensure the longevity of the pleasure the little bear brings.

    I find great joy in every stage of the making process, and especially in seeing how the little bear slowly comes to life through the various stages; from the drafting, cutting out, sewing up, stuffing and finishing. So often the final bear has grown and developed a life & personality of it's own, far beyond what I could have imagined at the start.

    Most of my work is inspired by the breathtaking natural world that surrounds us in our mountain home. Although sometimes I find inspiration no further away than the toys and picture books left scattered around our little home by my boy.
