Please use the paypal button provided. I only have one of each available. All of my pieces are one of a kind. Also each monitor may be different, so the colors may be a bit darker or lighter than they may appear depending on your particular monitor. I will describe each one to best give you the idea of the actual color of each piece! Thank you. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!


I prefer to use Paypal for payments. If you'd like to purchase more than one item please contact me after you've purchased one and I will combine shipping and send you a refund.  In order to see more views of my pieces please click on the main image of each item.  I can be reached for questions at or or my FB page or on Instagram

My first critter is this sweet chunky bear I created from imported Russian plush fabric! The color is a bit lighter in person than the pics. He’s completely hand sewn and 5 way disc jointed. I used a pattern from a wonderful Russian designer, Tetiana Sadovska. He has imported German glass eyes, is stuffed with soft wood shavings, kapok and weighted with glass beads. He is 9” tall and sits 6 3/4” tall. He has been tinted with oil paints and pan pastels and distressed to look old and well loved. He is soft and squishy too and arms and legs are looser too for that feel. He has a little paper mache flower pot that I covered in fabric and words from an old vintage book. I have sealed the whole thing with distress glaze. I have put in a little pair of tiny wool pincushions and sweet leaf button on top. I added crushed walnut shells in the bottom for weight too. All together it’s 3 1/4” tall and 2” wide. His little chunky body weighs in at 12 oz so shipping will be a bit more for him. Thank you. Kindly asking $165 plus shipping. If you have any questions please let me know.
This sweet bunny has been all hand sewn and created using a fabulous bicolor imported German Schulte mohair. She is all disc jointed and tinted with oil paints and pan pastels. I used a pattern from an Etsy shop, Sweet Teddy by Yunia. She is 9” tall to the top of her head and sits 7” tall. She is stuffed with soft wood shavings, kapok and weighted with glass beads. Because of the beautiful mohair I didn’t do any distressing but I added a lovely vintage lace collar I stained with several colors of distress stain and added a found trinket to the front. She has a small hand sewn heart pincushion I created using a piece of an old vintage quilt and overdyed wool backing. The heart is 4” tall and 3” wide at the widest part. If you have any questions please ask. Thank you. **VALENTINE** kindly asking $165 plus shipping. Thanks.
Last but not least is my tiny sweet viscose mouse. He’s all hand sewn and disc jointed. He’s made from imported German viscose and has tiny little German handmade glass eyes. He’s a mighty 4” tall and sits 3 1/4” tall to the top of his head. I created him using a pattern from a Russian designer on Instagram @natali-gort. He’s all stuffed with kapok and weighted too with tiny glass beads! He’s so fun to fold and carry with you he’s so sweet. He comes with his paper mache heart box and has two surprises in there for you!! I covered the box with paper and page from an old vintage book. Plus stamped, sanded and then inked some more. The box was then sealed with distress glaze to protect it. The box itself is 3” wide snd 1 1/2” tall. Kindly asking $120 plus shipping. Thanks so much.
