10½ inches (26.6 centimeters)

Bizzy-Lizzy is a bumble bee who loves the world! She is a ray of sunshine & can often be found socialising with her buzzy best friends enjoying an all you can eat buffet of nectar & pollen. She enjoys the cuisine of most countries & will try anything once.
She is 10.5” tall from her shoes to the tips of her antennae & has a mop of cute black needlefelted hair. Her big amber eyes are made from English glass.
Bizzy is made from hand-dyed stripey mohair & wears a handmade crocheted daisy around her neck with a gold stamen.
Bizzy’s wings are the grandest in the land of bees. They are handmade using purple viscose, short curly mohair & lace. Tiny sparkling coloured beads & sequins make up most of the wings alongside handstitching & a little turquoise paint.
Her shoes are removable.

Hello! My name is Maxine & I live in the U.K.
I've been creating bears & other animals since 2014 but most of my regular makes have been since 2016.
I started with collecting bears & this gave me the inspiration to create my own.
I find it extremely relaxing to handsew & find bearmaking great therapy. I get so excited & find such joy in creating these special soft sculptures, especially when their new owners fall in love!!
I especially love the way my bears have a life & mind of their own. I have a picture in my mind of how I would like a bear to look but the bears dictate which way they want to go with this & I follow. This part of the make process is very appealing to me.
I don't have any one particular style, I just go with my mood. I may wish to create a big fluffy bear in gorgeous faux fur or a smaller primitive bear made from tactile viscose & mohair. I often pair furs together & use antique fabric for a beautiful look & touch. I do like to weight all my bears & critters with steel shot for that extra wonderful feel.
I hope you enjoy looking at my creations. They are all made with much love & heart.
All my makes are OOAK & 5 way jointed. They are sometimes wired for posing.
I would love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments!
