Like most bear makers, I relish an occasional challenge and making a small bear is certainly one of those! You may remember my first attempt at a truly titchy ted a few months ago ...
My first truly titchy ted head
8" Artan (in progress)
As you may recall, little 'Artan' really was little by my standards - a proper teeny tiddler at just eight inches tall. After I'd completed him, I promised myself I would create another wee bear, but this time would tweak my pattern to alter the shape of his head and adjust the length of his limbs.
At last I think I am beginning to find my way with these tiddlers! My second 8" bear 'Curio' can sit comfortably in the palm of a hand. I guess you could say such tiddly teds really are a curiosity, emerging from the workroom of this maker of big 'uns!
Curio is now available for adoption from my website:
