I have been having fun this last week creating two new Toy-Box Treasures, one called William, who is a new size of traditional style bear for me at 7.1/2 inches. I must say I have really enjoyed making William and cannot wait to make a little girl bear in the same size.
William has been made from a rich chestnut brown German mohair, and has matching coloured leather paw pads. I think he has stolen my heart! This little boy has been given the appearance of a little bear who has been over-looked in the toy box, but has all the signs of a bear who has been loved and played with in years gone by, he has even managed to keep a little bit of his worn out ribbon tied around his neck. He is still hopeful that some day soon he will be remembered.
If you would like to find out more about William, please take a look at my website Jac-Q-Lyn Bears and visit my traditional gallery page.
LITTLE WILLIAM HAS FOUND SOMEONE TO LOVE HIM.
This is George who is made from the most wonderful wavy kid German mohair, in a pale beige and a rich chestnut brown. He is wearing around his neck a genuine 1941 Half Penny with a picture of King George VI on the reverse of the coin.
George is 13 inches tall and a One of a Kind bear with an innocent look.
My fingers are itching to get started on a new Toy-Box Treasure, I am wondering if I am brave enough to go smaller than the 7 inches...we will have to see LOL!!!
