Dorothy - 28in Faux Fur Artist Bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
This gorgeous BIG girl is the very first creation made from our more recent design. She has been designed with child-like proportions, similar to our toddler range but much more chunky. She has a big, generously sized head with a broad nose, a sturdy body, long slightly bent arms and bent-knee legs. Dorothy has been made from a piece of our 'English Rose' mongolian style faux fur, that has a pale peachy-pink backing colour with a tightly curled darker peachy-pink tip. This is a stunning fabric, and one we haven't used in a few years - but really does make up into delightful bears.
Dorothy is fully T-pin jointed, firmly enough to sit up by herself, but loosely enough that she gives great cuddles and isn't impossible to position. Due to her bent leg design, she is a sitting bear, and looks great perched over the back of a couch or shelf, or sitting on her own seat. (She would also make a great bed-buddy!). We have stuffed Dorothy to a medium-firmness, and have given her some bead-shot weighting in her belly and feet.
Dorothy features 3D pulled peek-a-boo toes and fingers with light silk-dye shading. She looks out through large black glass eyes and has a HUGE hand embroidered perle cotton nose in a peachy-pink. (The nose alone too approx 3hrs to embroider! It isn't 100% perfectly symmetrical, but as close as we could physically get it!). Dorothy has additional silk-dye shading to her face and behind her eyes. She wears a fully removable vintage-style faux pearl collar in ivory- it ties with a bow behind her neck.
Dorothy is a one of a kind artist bear.
