"Zapata" (large OOAK teddy)

I try to make a One Of A Kind creation to offer to all of the collectors on my General Mailing List several times a year, usually either to celebrate a holiday or the change of seasons. I created this teddy to celebrate the first day of summer and also to celebrate the first time my work will appear in the UK magazine Teddy Bear Times (Aug/Sept issue, available July 19). Hooray!!!

This is Zapata who is a rare very large teddy for me at 12 inches (30.5cm).  I have not made a mink teddy this large in about a year. She is a beautiful beige / light tan mink. She is wearing a rhinestone shoe necklace and she has a collectible shoe. The theme for this teddy is "You can't have too many shoes. You can't have too many teddy bears. You can't be too happy".

I have also taken her photo with one of my mink mice to show the size comparison. As you can see from the photo one of my mink mice will make a wonderful companion for her.

You can see more details and photos of this teddy on my Adoption Website.
