Custom Ballerina Bears

Custom Ballerina Bears

My gorgeous miniature Ballerina Bear has been a popular bear with all ages. Now, you have the chance to customise your very own Ballerina Bear, in two sizes – 8.5cm and 12.5cm!

Coordinate her with other bears in your collection; or as a flower-girl bear to suit your wedding theme; or as the perfect gift for a ballerina fan, in their favourite colour.

Choose from 7 fur options, 11 paw pad colours, 10 velvet colours for the body of your bear which forms the base colour for the bear’s ballerina costume.

Finally, you can opt for cream or white lace for the bodice, and cream, white, pink, peach or red tulle for the skirt.

A truly unique miniature ballerina bear!

The finished Ballerina Bears stand at approximately 8.5cm/3.25in tall (mini bear), and 12.5cm/5in tall (small bear).

For further information and to place an order, send me an email (info.bearlybears@gmail.com), and I’ll send out an order form for you to make your selections.

Hawthorn Craft Market

Hawthorn Craft Market

I’m very excited to be attending the Hawthorn Craft Market on 3 December, at The City of Boroondara Parkview Room  in Camberwell, next to the Camberwell Library.

Hawthorn Craft Market is one of the longest running makers’ markets in Melbourne and run by the Rotary Club of Camberwell. There is free parking, barista-made coffee, and most stallholders are inside in airconditioned comfort.

This is their Christmas market and should be a wonderful day. Come along and you could have all your Christmas shopping done in one day!

Don’t forget to pop by and say ‘Hi’!

New listings on Made It

I finally had some time clear to set up a teddy photo shoot which is always more time consuming than I think it will be. Fortunately the weather was on my side, cloudy but bright, and I have snapped some gorgeous pictures of my latest bears.

A few of them are now up on my Made It store.

There are also some note card packs available, featuring various bears I’ve made over the years. Perfect for sending to a fellow bear-lover to say ‘Hi’, or for sending birthday wishes!

Catching my breath!

Catching my breath!

After a successful day out at The Melbourne Bear Bazaar, which was preceded by a few busy weeks of preparation, I’m going to take a few days to take care of my family and my house!

I did pick up some wonderful new fabrics at the Bear Bazaar though and I’m looking forward to creating some beautiful new bears in various different colours.

New listings will be up in Made It, Etsy and Bear Pile in the coming week so keep an eye out for those.

In the next few days, I’ll also be revealing a new collection which was on display for the first time at the Bear Bazaar! So check back here to find out more.

The bears are back!

The bears are back!

After a lengthy hiatus, I’m very pleased to announce that I’m back, with some brand new bears!

I’ve been busy making children over the last few years but now I find I have the time to make teddy bears again.

With an improved pattern and some wonderful new mohairs, including alpaca blends, now on the market the bears are looking better than ever.

They will be available on my MadeIt and Etsy stores very soon, and I’ll also be attending a few bear events over the coming year so keep an eye out for those announcements.
