Due to my current backlog of Custom Order requests already on my 2017 work schedule I am no longer accepting new orders until I complete the orders that are already on my work schedule. But if you are serious and don't mind the long wait then I will be happy to assign you a space on my Custom Work Schedule, I will let you know when I am nearing that number so you can send me your mink.
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)|
|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.
