"Be True" - a tiny hand stitched Sweet Souls bear with her own hand-finished picture box.
This darling little bear is 3 1/2 inches tall from ear tips to toes and is completely handstitched. "True" is a hand dyed faded old pink with a hint of rosy lilac. She has German glass eyes, waxed stitched nose and mouth and little stitched claws. Her bunny ears are stitched from silk/rayon, wool and cotton fabrics and trimmed with vintage ribbon flowers and glass seed beads.
Her aged rayon bow and bunny ears head wear are easily removable is you want to change her look. She is firmly stuffed using 100% wool and steel pellets so although she's tiny she is also quite solid and sturdy. With a little help True can stand on her own; her paws and nose are polished with beeswax. She's also five way jointed and can be removed and returned to her box should you want to take her an outing or two.
The picture box is made of durable and substantial solid birch and is 6 inches X 8 inches X 2.5 inches. The interior is completely lined with vintage sheet music. The box's exterior is very well finished in distressed layers of aged vanilla over primer, hand sanded to a soft smooth finish from corner to corner and sealed with a cracklure finish. The back is also completely finished to match the front (I don't like unfinished edges on anything) and has a small sawtoothed picture hanger. Bear and box are lovely for tabletop display as well as hanging on your wall!
As teddy bear collectors we were always looking for innovative space to display more bears. Since hand-made bears are such works of art why not display them where they can easily appreciated - in their own cozy little box frames. Besides, bears love to keep a watchful eye on their loved ones!
