5.5 inches (14 centimeters)

Thank you for stopping by to meet my newest little girls, a pair I’ve simply called ‘Sisters’. Each is hand stitched from German curly matted mohair and has 5 cotterpin ans disc joints with wobble heads. The taller sister measures approx 14cm/5.5”, the shorter one about 10cm/4” . They are filled with pure wool and glass sand for a little weight. The girls can also be posed sitting, but I prefer them standing.
They wear pretty dresses made from cotton french antique lace with a velvet sash threaded through a pretty sparkling rhinestone buckle. The bigger sister wears a hat I handstitched just for her, from hand dyed milliners straw. Both girls wear vintage millinery flowers on their heads, atop matching net bows.
Please let me know if you have any questions:) and thank you for looking.

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.
