By Blue Valley Bears

6 inches (15.2 centimeters)


I am very happy to offer for adoption a lovely new bear called Shira; this sweet bear stands just 6 inches high. Shira is completely hand stitched from a leopard printed vintage mink fur; with light brown fox fur for his fluffy ears. Cream Ultra suede is used for his feet and paw pads. Many hours have been devoted to precisely hand scissor sculpting his muzzle to reveal his round cheeks and little chin, his mouth is embroidered with black perle cotton. Shira’s cute nose is hand sculpted from polymer clay and sealed for shine and durability. He views the world through black glass eyes with white ultrasuede detail for a “Please love me” expression and his face is completed with layers of shading to enhance. On the inside he is five way cotter pin jointed, his arms and legs are double cotter pin jointed which allow his limbs to flop and move with ease. Each pattern piece is reinforced with cotton for strength and durability and all seams are double stitched, to last a lifetime of hugs, he is filled with polyfibre and the addition of glass beads in his tummy give a little bit of weight. Shira’s companion meerkat is hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Welcome to Blue Valley Bears, My name is Susan Mitchell and I live in the picturesque Blue Mountains west of Sydney, Australia and I have been selling to collectors worldwide since 2005. My bears are entirely hand sewn from recycled vintage furs, generally mink but I also make use of muskrat and fox fur. From the first sketch to pattern drafting process and complete piece I strive for excellence in workmanship, quality of material and appeal. I enjoy what I do and the appreciation I receive from collectors is the best inspiration and compliment I could hope to receive. Turning Yesterday's Vintage Furs into Tomorrow's Heirloom Bears.
