For nearly 11 years, I have been making teddy bears known as IrisBears. I truly enjoy the entire process of creating bears – from the very beginning, when I draw sketches, imagine the future looks of a creature, right through till the last and the most exciting moment – inventing clothes and accessories for a ready bear. While making a bear, I think of the joy he or she will bring, when an adult is able to feel a bit of a child once again. Husbands choose these bears as gifts for their wives, grown-up sons and daughters – to their moms. And I believe it is very pleasant to receive such a romantic present.
