5½ inches (13.9 centimeters)

I'd like to introduce you to Sophie, approx 4.5" seated, or 5.5" overall. She is hand stitched from palest sand coloured dense Alpaca blend fabric, had 5 cotter pin and disc joints, with wired arms for gentle posing. Sophie is filled with glass sand and pure wool. Her eyes are sparkling black English glass, and her face has been needle and scissor sculpted as well as softly airbrushed. Sophie can be posed either sitting or standing.
Sophie is all dressed up in antique French cotton lace, with a tiered lace skirt sashed with mauve velvet ribbon, caught in an aurora borealis even crystal encrusted heart shaped buckle. On her sweet head she wears a crown of vintage millinery flowers in shades of lilac and sprinkled with aurora borealis Swarovski crystals for a final sparkling touch.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions and thank you for visiting Sophie:)

Handcrafted Artist Bears and friends from Australia with a girly vintage touch. Made from the finest available materials and trims, most pieces are one of a kind. A TOBY and Golden Teddy nominated artist, I've been making bears since about 1991. Most of my bears these days are in the miniature to small size range- (2-8") though I have been known to break out now and then into larger bears. I also teach bearmaking and make patterns for some of my designs. I enjoy incorporating vintage and antique laces, flowers and accessories into my creations wherever I can. Please feel free to drop me a message should you have any questions.
