'Gris Sweetfrost' is a 6", antiqued, scruffy, blue backed/gray colored mohair bear, treated and hand tinted/painted in shades of sepia, violet and steel colored pigments in the 'haute heritage' - la de da' style. She is very well loved, plucked, weathered and worn to look like a bear from yester-year. Hand sewn, center seam head design, stuffed with poly and copper shot for a cozy weight in the hand. Embroidered nose and mouth. Her arms and legs are thread jointed and her head is wobble jointed for lots of movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. This is a new pattern sporting a new more upturned nose. I am obsessed with getting just the right profile and I really like this one. She wears a crown of faux snow covered flowers on her head for a bit of la de da' flair. Her paw pads have been treated for a wet/worn/shabby texture....for a "well loved" appeal. She comes with a perfect little prop stand for more posing options and the ability to stand.
All of my designs are one of kind, from my own patterns, no two bears are alike. From my heart to your hand....I hope the La De Da' Bears bring you a smile.
Someone on Facebook asked me where I dream up my "signature" bear names, and commented on their uniqueness. I make them up! Inspired by my Native American heritage, love for romance, fantasy, fairies, the celestial realm, roses, nature and botanical themes...therefore translated to the bears names. I get chuckles from some of them and hope their unique names are expressed in their style as well.
