Miniature handmade artist mohair Teddy Bears by Jean Grogan
Mitzi, Poppy, Bones and Doug
I really need to take another photo of Mitzi as her colour isn't showing correctly on my computer. I will try again later today. She is made from long Schulte mohair which is hard to describe. It is a blondish colour that is on a backing with a tinge of pale aged green colour ,( hardly noticeable). She has black glass eyes and an embroidered, waxed nose. She is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with kapok and has steel shot in her body for a nice heavy feel. I have added a little shading and waxing to her face and paws. 4 inches tall
Here is Poppy, another new style bear. She is approximately 3 3/4" tall and made from vintage red velvet. She has a long body and short arms and legs and is fully cotter pin jointed. I have heavily plucked and shaded her and added extra stitching and waxing to her for a much played with looking bear. Poppy is filled with kapok and steel shot and has a vintage looking perfume bottle around her neck.
Doug is made from a vintage cream upholstery fabric. He is about 3 1/4" tall and fully cotter pin jointed. I have needle sculptured lots of wrinkles to Doug's face. He has large black eyes and an embroidered and waxed nose and mouth. I have added lots of shading to him and he wears a Top Dog silver coloured bone around his neck.Doug is filled with Kapok and steel shot
Bones, brother to Dawg is approximately 3" tall, fully cotterpin jointed and hand stitched. He is made from a light golden mohair and has large brown eyes , a sparsely embroidered nose and a grumpy mouth! He is filled with kapok and has steel shot in his body . I have hand shaded and waxed him for extra character and he wears a grumpy silver coloured dog around his neck.
