Meet my offering for this month, “Miss Penelope”. I was so excited to use this new mohair! I decided a bear was in order, and created “Miss Penelope”. She is made from a quality German mohair in a gorgeous Ice Blue with a dark chocolate color backing. It was hard to get a truly good picture, but trust me the color is gorgeous! I gave her blue glass eyes, a hand stitched nose, and mouth. I gave her hand shaded details using PanPastels, and acrylic paints. She is all hand stitched, and generously and firmly rag stuffed with some ground walnut shells added for weight. Her head is firmly stuffed with a good poly fill for dimension.
Her head, arms, and legs are all stitched into place. She sits well on her own. She is wearing ribbons around her neck in a soft brown, and pretty blue. She will come with the box she is sitting on. I used a paper Mache box which I covered with the brown fabric, and aged it a bit with paints giving it an old antique look. I also lined the interior with some special papers, one being from an antique stamp album. I also aged the papers inside the box giving them an old appearance. “Penelope” loves her box dearly, and hopes it will be filled with lots of special treasures. She said she would let her new mom or dad begin the process.
“Penelope” is a somewhat adventurous bear. She does dearly love blueberries, and tea with plenty of honey. She has had some long conversations with my antique bears about their travels, and can’t wait to begin hers. She is looking for her adoptive family, and will come with her “Adventure Box” as all the bears have called it. She sits nicely on it, and she likes the extra height it gives her. She is all hand stitched, and comes from a smoke free home.
Measurements: “Miss Penelope” measures about 8½" tall to the top of her ears and about 6" at her widest point. Her box measures 5” x 5". “Penelope” sitting atop her box, box included, measures about 13¾” tall.
