Collaboration Bear: Dumpling - 13" handmade mohair artist bear- OOAK
- a 'Collaboration Bear' ( Initiated by 'The bear lady at Forbes' - Joan Neowhouse, and completed in remembrance by Emma's Bears following her passing).
Collaboration Bears are a completely unique range of bears for Emma's Bears. They are an eclectic assortment of bears and animals in all shapes and sizes, and all types of fur, in various states of completion, and cut from patterns and designs that are totally unknown/unfamiliar to us. We've committed to completing these little souls after their original crafter passed away, and her family were unsure what should happen to all her unfinished work.
This little lady has been made in a scruffy 'ratinee' style mohair (loose, loopy curls) in a dark violet purple on a rich berry-pink backing for the ultimate colour contrast. We've given her a pair of large black glass eyes with subtle eye-whites, and a hand-embroidered nose in a matching deep pink DMC cotton thread.
Dumpling has been fully jointed - firmly for her limbs and wobble jointed for her head. She is stuffed with polyfill and a decent amount of steel and glass shot to give her some weight. Her foot pads are cut from a deep pink faux cashmere fabric and we've embroidered on lighter pink 'claws'. She features subtle silk-dye shading to her face and paws, and wears a gorgeous over-sized floral collar and full removable tiara.
Dumpling is a one of a kind artist bear. She comes with her Emma's Bears /Collaboration Bears identification tag. The rest of her friends can be found in their own listings.
