My name is Sandra Marie and I am the artist/bear maker behind Bear Hugs Originals. I have been creating/designing teddies and their little friends for over 20 years. The bears I create are made of the finest quality mohair, alpaca and luxury faux fur available. Each Bear Hugs Original is handmade and 100% hand sewn without the use of a sewing machine. All of my patterns are designed from my own sketches and each bear is an original, authentic collectible artist bear.
I offer layaway on all my creations over $100.00. My layaway policy is two equal payments, half to hold the bear and the other half net 30 days. Layaway payments are non-refundable. Thank-you.
