Miniature handmade artist mohair Teddy Bears by Jean Grogan
Wesley, Doyle, Molly and Wilbur
Wesley is just about 3" tall and made from vintage brown velvet and filled with steel shot and kapok. He has black glass eyes and an embroidered waxed nose. He has been plucked, shaded and waxed and has extra black crude stitching for a "well loved" look. Like all my bears he is fully cotterpin jointed and hand stitched.
Wesley wears a rusty bell around his neck and is
Doyle is the first of another new design. He is just under 4" tall and made from a long blonde matted mohair that has been extensively plucked and aged. He is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with kapok and steel shot and has black glass eyes and a sparse, embroidered nose and tiny mouth and ears
. Doyle is for sale at £65 (Spice not included)
Wilbur is the first in a completely new design. This bear is 5" tall but I will be making some smaller similar versions in the future. This Wilbur is the only one with his own vintage tin.
He is made from a hand dyed yellowy mohair which I have plucked, waxed and hand painted for a very well loved looking bear and is filled with kapok and steel shot. He has a large head with a pretty gormless expression! Big green glass eyes, low ears and a sparsely embroidered nose. He is fully cotterpin jointed and wears a rusty bell and rusty looking safety pin on a scrap of vintage black lace around his neck.
As with all my bear he is completely hand stitched
Wilbur is for sale at £72
Molly is just about 2 3/4" tall when standing and made from a pale pink mohair. She is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with steel shot and kapok. She has black glass eyes and a very sparse embroidered nose. She wears a spotted ribbon around her head and a row of pearls well maybe fake pearls!) around her neck.
She has light shading to her to give her an aged appearance and
