I am having a lot of fun, re-discovering my love for tiny teddies. There really is nothing like a miniature teddy, that has all the proper proportion and features of a large bear, so that it's difficult to tell what size it is from a picture.

This is Rosey - she is a mere 3 inches tall and made from cream, German Shulte Mohair. She is fully disc-jointed, like the big teds and is stuffed with traditional excelsior and gently weighted with stainless steel shot and granulate. Her mohair and ultra-suede paw pads have been aged and distressed, for a lovely antique look. There are tiny bald patches in her mohair and wee holes in her paw pads, for the excelsior to poke through. A simple vintage pink, silk ribbon was all she needed around her nece, with a tiny antique bell for decoration.

Rosey comes with a tiny reproduction vintage purse. I stumbled across these in a gift shop, on our recent trip to Lancaster, PA and I knew exactly what I could use it for. The purse is decorated with embroidered organza roses and it is the perfect compliment for Rosey. You can view her auction by clicking on my "Ebay Listings" under My Links, at the top right of my blog. I hope you enjoy her as much as I enjoyed creating her.
