"Made For My Own Collection"

Summer" is a cute little Anime Bear. At just 2.5ins/5.5cms, Summer has been created using the prettiest shades of cashmere, in a bright white, soft lemon and baby pink. She is poly filled and thread jointed. Summer has tiny black bead eyes. embroidered mouth/eyebrows and a very cute resin nose. Her finishing touch is a very pretty pink shimmering organza ribbon around her neck. Summer was not created from my own design but made by myself from a bought kit I had given to me. I couldn't resist making her up! Isn't she cute though!

"Tatty" A Sweet Miniature Puppy

"Tatty" 1.5ins
This is "Tatty" a 1.5ins Miniature Treasure Puppy. Tatty has been lovingly created using lovely soft merino wool in white and grey. She has been needle felted  and has needle felted features including her tail and comes complete with her bright red needle felted merino wool nest. Tatty has a thread jointed head for posing, limbs are not jointed.
Tatty is looking for a loving cosy little home and is ideal for a miniature collection. She will be on my website and Etsy store soon.
I hope you like her!

"Topsy" Second Felted Guinea Pig

"TOPSY" 1ins Guinea Pig

Meet "Topsy" my second "Miniature Treasure" Guinea Pig. Topsy has been needle felted from beautiful, soft merino wool, black and tan. He is one inch long and about 1/2 ins high. His eyes have been needle felted and his mouth/nose embroidered. He is such a cute little guinea pig who sits happily on his soft little bed which has also been needle felted from a very pretty mottled blue merino wool. Nest is approx. 1.5"x.5"

Topsy is looking for a new home and is now in my webstore and in my Etsy Store .

Like Popsy (post below), Topsy was created from a memory of two little guinea pigs that I had the honour to love and care for as a child, Topsy (black and tan) and Popsy (beige and tan).

For more photographs visit Topsy in my BEAR STUDIO

I do hope you like him!
