regarding my Custom Teddy Waiting List:
I AM NO LONGER ADDING ANY NEW NAMES TO MY CUSTOM TEDDY WAITING LIST.
After I (hopefully) finish the custom teddies on my current list I will be going back to making ONLY my Artist Mink Bears. Sorry I will no longer be making Custom Mink Teddies. At my age (I'm a senior) I have many new designs of my own that I want to create before the arthritis in my fingers forces me to stop.
My doctor verified from x-rays of my hand that I am starting to get arthritis in my fingers so I will be limiting the number of Custom Orders that I accept each year ... I need to have more time to make my one-of-a-kind creations while I am still able to sew (I also have a closet full of minks that need to become teddies or other animals).
|1: PATTERN ONE (traditional arm position)|
|2: PATTERN TWO (arm position that can sit like a puppy)|
Cost per teddy: $350
|This teddy is an example of my "Pattern 2" option where the teddy's arm are positioned |
so the teddy looks so precious to be displayed in this forward sitting position
(I think it is very much like a puppy would sit)
|These teddies are a good example of my "Pattern #1"|
which is more traditional arm placement
as you can see, the teddies sit in an upright position with their arms by their sides.
|I always make the teddy paw pad from the mink lining.|
Sometimes I have a special request to make a "sitting pad" with the name embroidered on the lining and/or the labels.
