I thought I would share what I have been making since Little and Large, Ernest and Ethel are both 5 inches high and sit lovely in the palm of your hand, this is my favorite size of bear to work on, a little bit bigger than the miniature and so a bit easier to make them clothes although I still ended up making a few things before I decided on the tank tops they are wearing. I am pleased how they both turned out. Well.. back to work now, I have a beautiful piece of dusky pink mohair on my work desk at the moment, I think it will make a lovely girly bear.
I am married to Alan, an Engineer and we have a grown up daughter Charlotte who after a career as a dancer/singer is now a Dance Teacher. I have been designing and making bears, bunnies and clothes for bears since 2005. I have won British Bear Artist Awards with my creations and they have also featured in many teddy bear magazines.
In my spare time I like to dance, taking classes in Ballroom, Latin and Old Time, also Tap Dancing.
