'TRULY' a pretty 'Nursery Bear' available

It was a serendipitous conversation I had when I called my lovely friendly mohair supplier and she said she had some very pretty blue fabric. Well any one who knows me will know I always say I tend to go for 'BEARY' colours...but I thought 'What the heck...may as well give it a go,' so when this piece of mohair turned up I was thoroughly inspired.

It reminded me so much of those old waterslide type transfers that used to be on babies cots in the 50s and 60s , those faded pastel colours that every babies nursery was full of.
So that got me thinking about the sort of bear that would sit in a nursery, just waiting for baby to grow up and play with it. But by that time other toys take over and the teddy still sits and waits.

So now I decided I would right that wrong and here is 'Truly' very first 'Nursery bear'.

He is 18 inches tall and has the sweetest face which has been scissored and shaded along with needle felting to create expressive eye detailing. He has a polished and shaded nose and shaded foot and paw pads which I sculpted for extra detailing..

I made a lovely floral collar from vintage velvet flowers which compliments him beautifully.

His adoption fee is £695 inclusing UK postage , to Europe add £10 and for worldwide shipping add £20. This is a lovely heavy bear!

TRULY BEAR has been ADOPTED..huge thanks!


  1. I love Truly's color - when I first saw this bear on facebook, I thought the face looked like a bear of yours but the color was not one you would use! When I read your blog post, I smiled - good for you giving it a go as he's stunning! Hugs, Janice

  2. Thanks Janice..I am so used to only doing the bear shades but this has really inspired me to try new things!

    1. Great! I look forward to seeing a variety of colors now! Hugs, Janice

    Hope such a nice bear found an extraordinarily nice home; he deserves it ...
