I have been meaning to post these for the last couple of weeks. I have recently been working on a new line of softies for my shop. I love to sew and have started making bears each with their own personality and little story. They all come dressed in clothing made from vintage fabrics, and accessorized. I just started making “naked bears that you can dress yourself and will post about those next. But first let’s meet the one of a kind artist bears available in my shop.
Miss Lulla Rose is a collector. She lives in one of the biggest oak trees in the forest, and her home is chocked full of treasures. Her favorite things to collect are bunny toys, chairs, teapots, ceramic planters, and stamps. You can usually find her scouring the local antique shops and thrift stores, or she perhaps at home decorating with the help and opinion of her many cats.
Madeline Maree is an artist at heart and creates art with whatever she can get her paws on. Her favorite things to make are blankets, pincusions, garden art, and cake decorating. She’s just as fierce a knitter as she is a skilled welder. There’s nothin this bear can’t do.
Ophelia Louise, or Opie Lou as her family calls her, is a sweet spirited bear. She has many loves, but her favorite things to do are dance, read poetry, and bake cupcakes. Most days you can find her dancing in her kitchen, or hangin out with her friends reciting the great sonnets of Shakespere and munchin on handmade sweets.
Little Miss Emmylou is a quiet and kind little bear who likes to spend all of her time outside with her woodland pals. Her favorite things are picking wildflowers, drinking tea in pretty cups, and her best pal and constant companion Ferdinand the deer. Most afternoons you can find Emmylou and Ferdinand curled up under a big tree with a good book and a cup of tea.
Madame Mollie Mae is just mad about birds! She owns a pet shop in town that specializes in all types of exotic birds. She can whistle and mimic the call of any bird in her shop. She lives high up in a tree house shaped to look like a big fancy victorian birdhouse along with her best friend and favorite bird, Ollie blue.
Auntie Odalee is a spunky and nuerotic old gal who absolutely loves to explore. She’s an accomplished musician and opera singer who retired from the stage to lead a more exciting life traveling and teaching piano lessons to the rich and famous aboard her sailboat.
You can find all these funky gals in my etsy shop Sweet Sophie Blue.
