9 inches (22.8 centimeters)

Joy is crocheted from a curly yarn. She is one-of-a-kind and stands 9 inches tall. Her face is needle felted with black German glass eyes and a shiny black glass nose. Her head is cotter pin jointed, the limbs thread jointed. She is filled with poly fiber and some steel shot for a nice weight.

Joy's accessories include: a jacket (hand knitted by me), a matching head band with hair clip, and a tiny ducky around her neck.

Bearkidz-babies are one-of-a-kind (ooak), crocheted without use of any pattern by me, award winning artist Marion Fraile. I sculpt my bears giving them their shape during the process of crocheting by adjusting and changing the number of stitches used. I never use a pattern but rather use my sense for proportions. Long hours are spent to finish a bear. I dont have a piece of fabric to work with but rather have to create my fabric with many, many tiny stitches, stitch by stitch. Mainly for this reason I am only able to make a very limited number of bears annually. Whenever I start crocheting a new bearkidz I start by selecting fibers/threads which I believe will make an interesting fur. Very often I combine completely different colors to achieve the most unique coat. Sometimes a thread has tiny color dots or occasionally comes with a shiny metallic thread worked in.
