My favorite item for sale in this shop has got to be the adorable bears that they make! These are just the cutest! They did a really great job making them. I love all the small details on these little guys, for example the little eyebrows, and I also love how the eyes are actual buttons and not just stitched on. The little bow tied on to them is cute as well, and adds the perfect finishing touch!
"A sweet little bear completely hand sewn using high quality felt, embroidery thread, and black safety eyes. She stands 6 inches tall and just about 5 inches when sitting.
She would be suitable for taking along on a trip and for gentle play. She is not suitable for young children as she has,small parts and may pose a choking hazard. She would also be great for display or as a special gift."
