My name is Sabine Cheshire and I started to make teddy bears 1998, while living in the UK, now I am living in a small town near Berlin / Germany.|
During my visit of the Kensington Dolls House Festival in London I saw for the first time miniature bears and I was absolutely fascinated.
I started directly to make miniature bears and because I was a keen knitter, I knitted the clothing on miniature needles (0,8mm UK21).
Today I am not just making and designing miniature bears but many different critters, like snails, sheep, mice, rhinos, dodos and many more.
No one is bigger than 8cm (3,5 inches), the smallest one I ever made was a 9mm sheep (0,35 inches).
Most of my bears and animals are OOK, specially if they have hand knitted clothing and handmade accessories.
All my miniatures are disc jointed and filled with steel shot and sheep wool. I use a wide variety of materials like miniature teddy fabrics, rayon, plush and Ultra Suede.
I love it to give my miniatures their own personality and I am happy if they put a smile on your face.
Please notice my bears and animals are collectors items and not suitable for children to play with.
We live in a non-smoking home. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
