Popcorn Teddy Bears

This is really a "back to basics" teddy design for me because compared to my designs standards today this is a pattern that is very similar to my early mink teddy bears of the 1990s. While I do consider this pattern to be a "simple" one because I now have 27 years of teddy bear design skills this new teddy pattern is more accurately "simple and sophisticated".

I was inspired to design this teddy when I saw a popcorn box and the idea of a "Popcorn Teddy" came to me (see my earlier WIP post).

Like a kernel of popped corn
Each Popcorn Teddy is unique
and a One-Of-A-Kind

This is Popcorn Teddy #1
This one has the shortest muzzle and the smallest head
It also has the whitest mink

Popcorn Teddy #1 has been ADOPTED

This is Popcorn Teddy #2
This one has the longest muzzle and a larger head

Popcorn Teddy #2 was quickly ADOPTED

This is Popcorn Teddy #3
This one has a slightly shorter muzzle than #2
Popcorn Teddy #3 was quickly ADOPTED

Coming soon ... a brand new teddy design!

Over the Holidays I took a brief break from working on my Custom Orders to design a new teddy ... working on a new design was the gift that I gave myself for Christmas. I was inspired to design a new teddy pattern when I found some popcorn boxes while shopping in my local Target store. I didn't buy them at first but I kept imaging a rather round white mink teddy with little stubby arms and legs ... a little Pooh-Bear like ... and a little like a popped kernel of corn. While each Popcorn Teddy is similar it would still be unique, just like popcorn. So, of course, I HAD to take the time to design this imaginary teddy and I couldn't make just one ... so I will be offering three separate Popcorn Teddies. Each one similar but unique and each will come its own Popcorn Box.

I hope to be offering them next week. So if you are on my General Mailing List I will be sending out Adoption Invitations. The teddies will be listed here on my blog and each one will have a Buy Now Pay Pal button. (I will also list them on Artist Bears International website but you can not purchase them there).

Since this is a brand new design there will be no pre-sales because I want everyone who wants a teddy to have the same chance at adopting one.

If you are not already on my General Mailing List please send me an email and I will add your name to my list (there is a link to my email on the right side of this page).

Coming Soon
"Popcorn Teddies"
