I have been making miniature teddy bears for the last 20 years or so. You may have known me by my old business name, Kelli's Kollectibles, or Kelli Kilby.
I was nominated for numerous Golden Teddy and TOBY awards, as well as having had the honor of being selected as one of the guest artists for the Disneyworld Doll and Teddy Bear Conventions. I also designed some miniature artist teddy bears for the Gund Barton Creek collection.
I retired from my job as being a police dispatcher 4 years ago, and decided this year that I would try my hand at making a few miniature bears to see if I could still do it. I got hooked and am excited about creating colorful creations again.
I am also clearing out some of my excess vintage upholstery fabrics that I have collected over the years. please check back from time to time and see what I have posted from my stash of fabrics. I love to dye/bleach fabrics for my one of a kind bears, so look for those too.
If you’d like to be notified of when I post a new creation, follow me and you will receive an email when there is a new listing.
