I decided to have some fun and veer in a different direction for some fun. This is the result - Jasper the Bunny. Jasper is 6 inches tall and is made from a blonde curly mohair with a chocolate backing. He is fully disc-jointed and firmly stuffed with excelsior and stainless steel shot. Jasper's face ears and paws are shaded with permanent fabric paints, for a an antique appeal. He has amber German glass eyes ultra suede paws pads and felt inner ears, and he has been lightly distressed on the paws, ears and eyes, so show off his lovely dark colour.

Jasper wears a dark red molded, wool felt hat decorated with vintage bells. He also wears a ruffle of red paisley and a matching wool felt clown collar, decorated with vintage bells. Both the hat and collar are removable. This bunny is designed and made entirely by me and will come with a signed hang-tag. I have not aged his hat and collar, but I can do this, if it is preferred. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions. Thanks for peeking :o)

Lately, I have begun to age my bears a little more, to make them look a little love-worn. It means removing some of the mohair and making some holes in the paws etc. and lots of other little touches. It's extra work but it seems to make such a difference. I know that not all customers like that look, so it's a challenge to decide which look is best. Here are some pictures of my latest bear aged and not aged. I am happy that this one has found a home :o) Thanks for peeking in -I'd love to hear which one you like the best!

"Twinkle Toes" is my first elephant in a long time. He is 6 inches tall without his hat and 7 1/4 inches tall with his hat. He is a new design and is made from short semi-distressed gray German mohair that has been hand dyed and extensively aged (that means bald spots!). "Twinkle Toes" is stuffed with excelsior and granulate and he has some shading, with permanent heat-set paints, for old fashioned appeal. He has German amber glass eyes with a felt backing, aged ultra suede paw pads (with tiny holes) and cotton lined ears. "Tiddly Wink" wears a molded felt clown hat, trimmed with cotton and a and matching ruffle, which have all been aged.

"Twinkle Toes" is an original design, made completely by me and is a collectible and not meant for children. He will come with a signed hang-tag. Shipping within North America is $12.50 Expedited mail or $15.00 for UPS. Please contact me for international shipping. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. Thanks for peeking :o)
