~~~ Update ~~~ No longer available. ~~~Bastien and Bettina~~~

~~~UPDATE:  These two little ones have found a new home!  Thanks so much. ~~~

I’ve pictured Bastien and Bettina together in these first few shots simply because they look TOO cute together… but they are available individually. Click on the Pay Pal button beneath the head shot of the individual bears below.  Available on a “first come” basis.   I try to update as quickly as possible… please “bear” with me!

I have really been enjoying playing with variations of my patterns, to create these little duos.  These two cuties are made from a very special vintage fabric created by Malden Mills.  It’s a very dense and long upholstery velvet in shades of ginger and cream.  This lovely fabric is quite rare and can be hard to come by.  The last time I used this particular fabric was in 2007!  The pile has a lovely sparkly sheen to it.IMG_1497

Bettina is a fantasy panda made from Malden Mills long pile upholstery fabric in warm shades of ginger and ivory. She looks quite serious from the front, but when you view her from the side she has a hint of a mischevious grin!

IMG_1504

Bettina measures in at  4 and 3/4 inches standing.  She has bent arms and straight legs with wire armature, so she can hold soft poses with her arms and legs.

She has pretty green eyes with the tiniest reflective particles that catch and play with the light.  She has a an undereye white accent and a sewn in upper eyelid.  She also has subtle “panda” shading near her eyes as well as in her little ears.  Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches. Her nose is stitched in ginger silk floss and has been sealed for durability and a soft sheen.

Bettina has front and rear paw pads made of a shorter pile upholstery fabric with and tiny little pulled and shaded toes both front and rear.

Bettina’s ruff is made from several shades of micro tulle with a crocheted overlay of cream cotton.  The crochet is accented with tiny little glass seed beads.  A moss colored silk ribbon accents the collar.  Her clothing is not designed to be removable.

As always, I’ve paid very close attention to making sure that my miniatures have all the detail and intricacy of a much larger bear.  I am also a stickler for proportion.  I really like for them to pass for large bears until you see a  picture of one in my hand.

They will each arrive lovingly gift boxed and with her own photographic Certificate of Authenticity.
