Summer
Stuffed Bear
Incorrect? Contact Us
By Marion Fraile

7 inches (17.7 centimeters)

Summer is crocheted from yarn which became "fur-like" when brushed with a wire brush. This little girl stands about 7 inches tall and is one-of-a-kind. The head is cotter pin jointed, her limbs are thread jointed. Summer has premium German glass eyes and a shiny black glass nose. She is filled with poly fiber and steel pellets to give her a nice weight. I have applied subtle shading with dry oil paints to enhance her character.

Her accessories include a removable crocheted dress and a hand-made removable headband from tiny silk flowers and her wooden wheelbarrow.

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.
