Felicity is happy to say that she has found a new home in California, USA! 

Thank you.

Felicity is a happy and lovely little creature!  She was created from vintage Malden Mills upholstery velvet in a pale creamy beige.  This lovely fabric has the beautiful sheen and spark.  It’s also a longer pile upholstery velvet.  It my favorite stuff, and unfortunately it’s fairly difficult to come by now days.  Felicity’s chest patch, and all four paw pads are made of a shorter pile vintage velvet in cream.

She measures in at just 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.

Felicity has hand painted 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 above her cute little nose.  Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches.  Her nose is stitched in pink silk floss and has been sealed for durability and a soft shine.  I wanted Felicity to coordinate nicely with her cushion, so I’ve made her a sweet little Peter Pan collar out of the same wool.  It’s accented with tiny embroidered flowers and a silk ribbon rosette.  Her collar is not designed to be removed.

 Her front and rear paws have pads made of vintage rayon velvet, and they have tiny little pulled and shaded toes.  She’s been stuffed with poly fil.

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.

I’ve created the pincushion out of pale ivory wool felt.  I’ve stitched a garland of multi hued roses on the top as well as along the entire side of the cushion.  The roses are made from a gorgeous hand dyed silk embroidery ribbon.  The leaves are stitched in silk as well.  The stems and little buds are created from cotton floss.  The fancy pins are topped with polymer clay miniature roses.  To be quite honest, this pin cushion took nearly as long to complete as the bear!   I think little Felicity looks quite fetching perched upon it, though she can certainly be displayed on her own.  It’s such great fun to challenge myself with new needle arts.  I must say it fills me with pride and warm feelings to know that I can help keep these lovely past times alive and well in this digital age!

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