Welcome to my website!
I cannot remember a
time when I was not doing hand work and making something.
My mom and her
many sisters all had a hand in teaching me how to sew, knit,
My introduction to bear making came in the early 1990s. It was love at
cut working with mohair and while my first teddy, Theodore, was
his hug was the motivation to continue and begin
designing my own teddies. I
now design bears, cats, mice, bunnies and
elephants, along with other furry critters.
My bears, and friends, range in size from 4 inches to 21 inches. They
original designs and individually machine and hand sewn. I
use a variety of
high quality fabrics including English and German mohair, viscose,
and German synthetic
furs. All creations have either glass or antique boot button
Each bear, or critter, comes with a sewn in tag and hand written hang tag.
Most of my creations are one of a kind. Occasionally there may be a
of 2-3 pieces.
My creations have been featured in several teddy magazines. I love
collectors online and at shows.
Mary & all the furry friends
Carol send Teddy Hugs!
