I have finally finished a Hallowe'en teddy - Agatha the Witch. I normally make a lot of Hallowe'en bears, but somehow time has sped by this year. I hope you like Agatha - she's a sweet little witch, not a nasty one :o)

Agatha is 5 inches tall and made from beige mini German mohair. She is fully disc-jointed and traditionally stuffed with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. Agatha has german glass eyes, a sparse waxed nose and shading on her face, ears and paw pads (with permanent fabric paints). Her mohair has been distressed to give her vintage appeal. Agatha also has distressed ultra suede paw pads with tiny holes, which allows the excelsior to show through.

Agatha wears a sweet little dress made from an antique hanky. It has been gently aged, making it look vintage. She has a silver star on a silver thread, around her neck. Agatha's witch costume is made from dyed wood felt. It consists of a witch's hat and cape, a broom. and a pumpkin sign. The witch costume is removable so she can be displayed just in her dress for the rest of the year. Her dress is also removable.

Agatha also somes with a double sided Hallowe'en ornament, with vintage reproduction ephemera ( a little boy on one side and a black cat on the other. The images have been decorated with foil and glitter and are encased between two soldered pieces of glass and hung with a black organza ribbon.

Agatha and her accessories are both designed and made entirely by me, Brenda Power. This set with come with a signed hang tag and is a collectible, and not meant for children. Postage for Agatha is $12.50 postal shipping and $15.00 UPS to most places in North America. Please email me for a quote for international shipping and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. :o)
