~ Palu ~ Malayan Sun Bear Cub ~ on ebay :o)

This little sweetheart was a real challenge for me... sewing a tiny, detailed Malayan sun bear cub.  The black fur was definitely a challenge (my poor eyes!).  Palu is 1 3/4" .... I hope you can visit his auction which has more photos and all his details.

~ TBAAF Awards ~

Am I ever slow at announcing the good news!  After seeing how many great entries there were, I really didn't think I would win, so I was extra excited when I first found out that I won 4 of the Teddy Bear Artists And Friends Awards.  I'd really love to thank everyone who voted for my creations... it means so much to me!

Lots of Hugs,

My newest baby panda ~ Bao Zi Chu ~

I just finished my newest panda and couldn't wait to share him with you!  He is made from recycled mink fur (from coats).  I had so much fun with this little guy, and a lot of challenges too... it's amazing how much harder I find working in recycled fur as opposed to faux fur. 

Enough words... now for the photos :o)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing him!  He's available on ebay if you'd like to see more photos and read all his details (oh, yes, he does have open/close eyes).

~ Shegisie ~ a baby brown phase black bear cub ~ on ebay :o)

Just a quick post to let you know that my newest baby bear, Shegisie, is on ebay... I hope you can take a look at his auction!

We saw three black bears while out driving on an old road.... beautiful creatures!  We also had 2 momma black bears in our neighbourhood this year - one of them had two cubs and one had 3.  At one point, there was a count of 11 bears within our neighbourhood! 

Hugs, Melisa

~ OOAK Realistic BABY Egyptian Hedgehog ~

If you've seen those adorable photos of long eared Egyptian hedgehogs, you'd understand why I was inspired to create one :o) They are so adorable!

Here's my little one... he is created with faux fur and has open/close eyes and mouth. His name is Aah which is an Egyptian name meaning "moon"... a good name for a mostly nocturnal creature.

He is available on ebay

His auction has loads of photos and all his details. I hope you can take a look at it... and thank you for taking a peek here :o)

~ Naneso ~OOAK Realistic Faux Fur BABY BLACK BEAR CUB ~

Hello again! :o) I haven't had a lot of time to be on-line... have had a lot of company lately. But I have had time to create Naneso... by newest sweet black bear cub. His name means "my child" and he is so full of personality.

I just love the part about creating bears when the sweet personality really starts showing. As soon as I can open/close his eyes, I really feel that the bear has come to "life". Each extra detail adds to my excitement as I finish the bear. I spent so much time creating Naneso that by the time I was done he did feel like "my child".

I hope you enjoy seeing Naneso here and can take a couple minutes to look at his auction which has lots more photos.

Thank you for taking a peek at Naneso here... I hope you have time to comment :o)
