Please use the paypal button provided. I only have one of each available. All of these are one of a kind. I can perhaps make one similar but they won't EVER be exactly the same. 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. Thank you. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!

****SOLD**** thank you My first offering is little Elisa elephant. She's made of a lovely soft gray brown imported German viscose. She's all disc jointed and has imported German glass eyes. I have completely hand sewn her, stuffed her with soft wood shavings and weighted her with glass beads so she sits nicely on her overdyed wool pincushion. I used a pattern from Olga Scheva. She is 7" tall, sitting 5" tall and her pincushion is 4" wide and is weighted on the bottom too. I have drilled a vintage small alpha block for her to hold. It's strung on waxed linen thread with some vintage mother of pearl buttons. I have sewn it thrower paws but can be removed if you would like by simply cutting the thread on one end and remove it. Her little "hat" is sewn together but attached only with the heart stick pin if you want to remove it its not permanent. All together the whole piece is 7" tall. Kindly asking $140 plus shipping.

**** SOLD**** thank you This is my sweet Bentley. He's a fluffy bear made of a fabulous bi-color long curly imported German mohair. The color is so hard to capture in the pics.The tips are a shade of what I would call mahogany brown with the base color being white. He is all hand sew, stuffed with fine wood shavings and weighted with glass beads. He has handmade imported German glass eyes. I have used a pattern by Wanderersbears on Instagram to create him. He stands 8" tall is 4" wide and sits 6" tall. I have made him a small pumpkin out of wool that he's wearing around his neck. He comes with his own jack o lantern pumpkin as his pincushion that I have made out of overdyed wool. The pumpkin has vintage shoe button eyes, appliquéd features and glass beads for his mouth. The pumpkin is 3" wide, 2 3/4" tall and with the stem 4 3/4" tall. I have stuffed the pumpkin with crushed walnut shells so it has a nice weight to it. The pair will cost a bit more to ship due to their weight. Kindly asking $160 plus shipping for the pair. Thank you. To see more detailed images please click on main image. If you have any questions please ask. Thanks
**** SOLD thank you***My last piece this evening is another fun Jack O Lantern I created similar to the one Bentley has. This is made of a fun overdyed wool, with wool appliqué features, rusty bells for eyes, and glass beads for his mouth. He's stuffed with crushed walnut shells and has a heavy covered disc on the bottom so he sits nice and heavy. The pumpkin is 3" wide, 2 3/4" tall to the top of the ball and with the stem he's 4" tall. A great addition for your fall sewing and enjoyment. I'm kindly asking $30 plus shipping. Thank you.
