Miniature Teddy Bears

My Teddy Bear creations vary in size from
tiny micro bears that are less than 2 inches standing,
to small bears that are approximately 14 inches standing.
I have been making my whimsical creations for several years.
My creations are all handmade by me.
Some may look similar, but since they are all handmade
they are all One-Of-A-Kind, with their own unique personalities.
My handmade collectible thread and fiber creations include:

~ Miniature Crocheted Teddy Bears ~
~ Traditional Sewn Teddy Bears ~

~ Needle Felted Wool Sculptures ~

~ "Bear Friends" (other animals) ~

Please note . . .

My Teddy Bears and Bear Friends are created as art objects,

and are intended to be enjoyed as adult collectible items.

They are not suitable for small children.

My "Fur-Children"


I am owned by some very special boxers, my "Fur Children", all named after animated princesses. They are my loving companions. When I decided to offer my bears for adoption I needed to create on a business name. "Princess4Paws" was a nickname my husband gave to my first boxer fur-child when she was a tiny puppy just learning how to walk on a leash. At least she was supposed to be walking. When my husband came in after a walk holding our little boxer puppy curled up in his arms, I asked him what was wrong. He responded that little "Princess4Paws" just wanted to sit in the grass, not walk, so he carried her. When it came time to select a name for my bear business, her big loving eyes reminded me of her nickname, and I made my decision, "Princess4Paws".
