Toby would love some fine sailing weather......


One of a kind. Approx 8 1/2 inches tall.

Created from sparse German mohair with complimenting cashmere paw pads. Toby is five way disc jointed, partly filled with beads to give him a nice weight in his plumper than normal tummy - he does so love honey and peanut cookies. Toby has black glass eyes.

Toby wears a sailor's jacket made from ivory cotton, lined with pale duck egg blue and trimmed with grey satin ribbons. His hat completes his outfit.

Toby has been adopted.

Aunt Maude in her finest Scottish Tweed

Aunt Maude.

One of a kind. Approx 9 1/2" tall.

Aunt Maude is a wee Scottish Lady in her beautiful tweed coat. 

The tweed has some wonderful moorland colours; soft blue, for an Autumn sky; the colour of a Loch with its reflections of green moors and blue sky creates the main colour of the tweed. There is a pale and a slightly darker tan in the fabric; similar to the colour of bracken at the end of the Autumn. 

Aunt Maude has ultra suede paw pads; her tummy, feet and paws are partly filled with beads to give her weight. She is five way disc jointed and has glass black eyes.

I love silk so I've created Aunt Maude a silk hat. The colour is pale pale dusty rose. I have trimmed the inner brim with a complimenting dusty brown cotton fabric that matches the lining of the hat. An oversized dusty brown feather trims the brim.

As Aunt Maude's coat is such a lovely Tweed. I didn't want to cover it too much so she wears a cream lace shawl, secured with a silver and mother of pearl cameo brooch. 

I'm adopted - thank you!

Harry Jr in Tweed

Harry Jr.

One of a kind, approx 8 1/2 and a tad inches tall.

Harry Jr has been lovingly hand stitched using English wool herringbone Tweed in a soft nut brown and creamy beige colour. He has ultra suede paw pads, beautiful black glass eyes and a black stitched nose.

Harry Jr is partly filled with beads so he has a little extra weight - not that he minds carrying a little weight as he'd prefer to enjoy his favourite honey cookies without having to be concerned..

To keep Harry Jr snug I have knitted him a scarf in tweedy beige and vintage blue yarn.

Harry Jr has been reserved - Thank you Jo.

Lillibet & Dylan


Every girl loves a sailor - or so the saying goes. This little boy is especially sweet so who wouldn't love him?

Just 8 1/2 inches tall. Created from a slightly darker natural mohair than Rhonwen's so they make a sweet couple.

Dylan wears a nautical outfit of overalls, collar and hat stitched from vintage ivory cotton fabric, his outfit is trimmed with blue/grey satin ribbons, to secure his overalls, he has two complimenting buttons.

Dylan has been adopted - Thank you!


After all the celebrations we've had this past weekend in England, there had to be a 'Royal' bear in her finest outfit. Please meet Lillibet, an 11 inch bear dressed for an afternoon birthday tea. 

Created from a very pretty pink mohair and creamy ultra suede paw pads.

I have made Lillibet's outfit which consists of a hat, dress and jacket. The dress has pink roses dotted all over, trimmed with vintage cream lace at the hem. (as some trims are vintage, they aren't always perfect) 

Lillibet's hat has an inner brim which matches her dress, the outer brim matches her cream jacket. The crown of her lined hat is pink felt.

The jacket is lined with a delicate pink check. Adorning the hat and jacket are two silk variegated pink roses, both with seed pearls in the centre. 

Lillibet is adopted - Thank you!
