Sailing away.....

Little Harley is all set to go sailing.

As I live just a ten minute walk from the Sea, I can't resist creating these sweet little sailor bears.

Harley is just 8 inches tall, one of a kind and five way jointed.


Harley is created using German mohair in a lovely creamy blonde colour. He has glass black eyes, beautifully stitched black claws on his feet & paws. His tummy, feet & paws are partly filled with weighty glass beads to give him a nice feel in the palm of your hand.


I have hand made Harley's sailing outfit. His overalls are made of 100% cotton in a dusty vintage blue colour with polka dots in ivory dotted all over them. They are secured with two shoulder straps with two vintage linen buttons.

I have made Harley's Hat and Sailor collar to match, the colour is vintage ivory to match the polka dots on the overalls. They are both trimmed with vintage satin ribbon in a dusty grey colour.

Harley has a stitched in label with my name on in his back while around his neck he will have a swing tag with his name on.

Harley Has been adopted.

Thank you!
