I love Pandas - in fact I think they are one of my favourite creations. When I was a little girl I thought they were so exotic and cute and cuddly. May I introduce this little panda to you, only 20cm tall and filled with alpaca fleece from the alpacas on my own farm in Devon. I do hope you love him too.
Remember, small parts and glass eyes - these are wonderful collectables & keepsakes but NOT for children.
I create bears, bunnies, foxes, puppies and other characters that leap into my imagination. The characters develop from thoughts to pattern paper, from calico to beautiful mohairs, as a new character emerges from my workroom.
But the story doesn't end there. When I imagine a character, I visualise eyes, whiskers and shading. I see clothing, accessories and a special world surrounding this little creature. All clothing is designed and sewn by myself. All accessories are either sourced from the natural environment (eg.shells,fossils & lichen), from antique shops (eg.Victorian microscope slides) or carved in my workroom - like the wooden 'shoe last' carried by Salvatore the Shoemaker Fox. My work isn't simply a bear or a rabbit but a complete character with a story to tell. ❤️
Each creation will be delivered to you in it's own handmade bag with a little photo collection of images. There is also hangtag and a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by me, so you can be sure that you're receiving an original TedandSue, not an imitation.
All creations are delivered wrapped in acid free tissue and beautifully gift boxed.
You will also receive a copy of my book AlpacaChatter, a full colour, illustrated story book about the alpacas on my farm and their calamitous adventures. If you would like the book dedicated and signed either for your own collection or as a gift, do let me know.
PLEASE NOTE: My bears and characters are for the ADULT collector, they contain small hardware joints, glass eyes and are dressed in fine, vintage fabrics. THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
