Nickelby is a wonderful new pattern of mine. He's got a higher forehead than most of my bears, giving him a positively more bearish appearance. He's got the sloping snout, the long arms and big feet of a steiff and the hump on the back. He has it all and I figured all he needed was a simple rusty jingle bell round the neck. Nickelby
has already found a new home.

Apricot and Petal

I hand-dyed Apricot (top) a lovely shade of peach. Turned out great. Unfortunately she did not find a home on eBay so she will be moving to my etsy shop. Petal, the pale pink bear, turned out to be the happiest jolliest sort of bear I could imagine. She has found a home in Colorado.
