This summer, when I’ve not been sewing bears, I’ve been on a bit of an embroidery kick.  I just love this delicate and romantic needle art.   I’ve often used silk ribbons and flowers to decorate my bears, but I’ve never tried embroidering the actual bear fabric before.  I just love the results!  Kailyn is made from two beautiful fabrics from Sassy Bears & Fabrics.  These are the long pile “Sassy” fur in pale cream and light caramel.  This fabric is so crazy soft… and it took the embroidery so well.

This lovely little girl is about 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.  Kailyn has pale pearly blue eyes with an undereye white accent and a sewn in upper eyelid.  She has subtle shading near her mouth and eyes as well as in her little ears.  Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches. Her nose is stitched in raspberry silk floss and has been sealed for durability and a soft shine.

She has front and rear paw pads with tiny little pulled and shaded toes.

I’ve shown several photos of her with my hand so you can see the tiny scale and intricacy of the embroidery.  It takes a surprising amount of silk ribbon to create these minuscule blossoms!  It’s done with 2 and 4 mm silk ribbon in shades of variegated raspberry with grass green foliage.  I’ve also added little French knot buds in variegated blues and lavender.  She also sports a ruff made of crocheted trim that ties with a matching silk ribbon bow. Her ruff 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.

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