A new Beady Bear

Sadie will probably be the last Beady Bear for this year, unless I can fit in another one between baking Christmas cookies.  They are so much fun to create.

Beady Bears - A New Design

I am very excited to introduce you to a new line of AutumnWood Bears called 'Beady Bears'.  Beady Bears is a new project that I started in partnership with my very talented son.Together we are trying to bring to life those little creatures that live and play in our imagination and can only be seen if you believe in the magic of something beautiful.

My original bears, bunnies and kitty cats will still be the main part of my collection, but we will try and bring at least one Beady Bear to life each week. 

Beady bears will be between two and three inches tall with a wobbly-double jointed head and a full body armature.  Your Beady Bear will arrive beautifully gift boxed with his or her own hang tag and personal details.  

Beady Bears will be available on a ‘first come’ basis but if you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

More photos of Nini here.

This little spicy kitten is called Cinnamon.  
Cinnamon is a one of a kind kitten and she is made of a gorgeous soft Tissavel fur.  She is shaded in warm tones of hazel nut and cashews.

Cinnamon  is approximately 7 inches tall, a bit bigger than my usual bears and kittens. 
I painted her glass eyes in pretty shades of sea surf blues and her nose is needle felted.
Cinnamon has armature in her arms and tail and she can be posed in many different cute poses.

Cinnamon is currently available for adoption.

A very Chubby little Bear

Sewing baskets full of tiny kittens was a lot of fun, but I did miss the bears!  

This little bear was hibernating in my sewing basket since the beginning of summer, patiently waiting for me to finally finish his eyes and face.  He was really suppose to be a Christmas bear, all adorned in red ribbons and sparkles, but when his eyes turned out a gorgeous ice-blue, red did not look fitting any more.

His name is Ayumi, it reminds me of 'yummy' ! Looking at his round tummy, he seems to like everything yummy too.

Ayumi is currently available for adoption
