Her name means, bright and cheerful, like the sound of a bell.  I think it suits her so well!  She and her accessories have certainly brightened my dreary Ohio “Spring!”

 From time to time I am asked why I so infrequently make traditional pandas.  I DO love them to bits, but I have to say it’s because they can be very difficult to photograph.  Black and white are the trickiest “colors” to photograph, as sometimes you loose the shape and dimension in the photo.  I did my very best to capture little Lin Lin’s shape and personality digitally, but I do promise you you’ll find her even more appealing “in the fur!”  She was created from a super soft velboa fabric in pure white and black.   Her paw pads are made of ultra suede.

Lin Lin is about 3 and 3/4  inches tall when standing.  She has bent arms and straight legs with wire armature, so she can hold soft poses with her arms and legs.

She has hand painted pearlized gray eyes with an undereye white accent and a sewn in upper eyelid.  She has subtle shading near her mouth and eyes.  Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches.  Her nose is stitched in deep black silk floss and has been sealed for durability and a soft shine.  I wanted Lin Lin to coordinate nicely with her cushion, so I’ve made her fancy silk ribbon ruff in shades of scarlet and apricot.   Each loop is accented with a tiny turquoise seed bead.  Her collar is not designed to be removed.

 Her front and rear paws have pads made of ultra suede , 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.IMG_2675

Lin Lin’s little tuffet is made from a cheerful assortment of cotton fabrics. I’ve crazy quilted the fabrics together and then embellished them with various seam treatments, trims, embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery.  You’ll find embroidered daisies, buttons, and woven silk ribbon roses accented with beads.  Each time you turn the cushion you will discover some tiny new thing!  Lin Lin also has a tiny matching toy ball that she will bring along with her to keep her little self busy.

IMG_2655 Truly a labor of love, I think she looks quite fetching perched upon it, though she can certainly be displayed on her own.  The tuffet may be used as a traditional pincushion, or to display a special broach or pin if you like.  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! I never tire of learning!

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