Iara - 18IN large kid mohair bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
18" (46 cm)
Iara is just perfection in a big, chunky mohair bear. She is made using two luxury mohair fabrics - a dark chocolate curly kid mohair for her limbs and a wavy, dense, long pile tipped mohair (brown backing, blonde pile, chestnut tip) for her head and belly. She was cut using our 'Alivia' pattern (available in our store).
Iara looks out through deluxe black glass eyes and has a big hand embroidered black cotton nose. She is fully and firmly T-pin jointed and stuffed very well with polyfill and a lot of smooth glass shot. Her paw pads are a sandy-blonde faux cashmere fabric (NOT actually cashmere, but the feel on your fingers is just as divine).
She has some silk dye shading and wears a soft, pastel peach floral headband. She also has a tiny, shimmery butterfly sitting on her foot as well (sewn in place). Her name 'Iara' means small butterfly... so this only seemed appropriate :)
Iara is a one of a kind artist bear.
~*~ Please Note that these bears are designed to be Adult Collectables and not intended for infants and young children due to small parts (eyes) and potential for damage (excessive limb twisting/ busted seams etc) – however child safe versions can be custom made and I would think that the bears would be fine with sensible, gentle children (yes – I am sure they exist!) Convo me if you have any concerns. ~*~
