Please meet my latest creation, Laramie.  Laramie is a sweet little soul, made out of beautiful Tissavel faux fur.  Tissavel is lovely, ultra high quality stuff, in fact it is just as costly as most mohair fabrics traditionally used for bear artistry.    The Tissavel really responds well to the methods I use to shape and sculpt the facial features, so I am able to really bring out an endearing face.  Laramie is a one of a kind teddy, and is a modification of my mid-sized Covington pattern.    She is a is a bent legged bear so she can not stand up to be measured, but she’d be about 11 or 12 inches tall had I made her with straight legs.  She is a soft beige color with a, inset muzzle and inner ears of pale cream.


Laramie has foot pads made of a coordinating 100% wool felt.  She has thread sculpted and shaded toes.  Laramie  does not have front paw pads.  Her limbs have been armatured so the wrists, elbows, ankles and knees can been gently posed.  I love to pose my bent legged designs with their little feet dangling off of a stack of books.  They also look lovely perched upon the edge of a shelf.


  IMG_0928   Laramie sports one of my signature ruffs made from yards of gathered ribbon.  Her ruff really accentuates her pretty eyes.  It’s a “shot” ribbon meaning that the warp and the weft threads are different colors.  The overall effect is so dimentional and gorgeous.  It’s a lovely combination of lavender and aqua.  The ruffs tie with an aqua ribbon and is accented with a couple of iridescent beads.  You can easily remove it to groom her or if you’d like to try out a new look on her. IMG_0934     Her eyes are made of glass, and have been hand painted on the backs.  I’ve her eyes in pretty shades of turquoise and emerald with reflective particles that catch and play with the light.  She has sewn in eye lids made of ultra suede that has been shaped and stiffened.  The picture right below is my absolute favorite of her… she has such an innocent, baby-like quality to her,   IMG_0935 Her nose is stitched in a pale salmon-pink silk floss and has been glossed and sealed for a soft shine as well as durability. IMG_0942 IMG_0933 Laramie is available for $545.oo US exclusively through this blog listing.  This price includes shipping to anywhere in the world.  She is a one of a kind, and will come with a signed photo certificate of authenticity.  You can purchase her  using the Pay Pal button which appears at the top of the listing.  If the Pay Pal button does not exist, or no longer works… then she has already found a new home.  I do my best to update my listings as soon as I am able. As always, please feel free to email me at : kimbasta@icloud.com   should you have any questions.  I thank you for your interest in my teddies!  I also maintain a mailing list to notify interested person when I have something new available.  If you’d like to join, just let me know.
