For a few years now, I have enjoyed making custom stuffed bears for friends and family. I just love how they feel, how they are squeezably soft. I decided to offer my handmade Beary-Huggable Teddy Bears to the public after a visit with my new friend, Katie. She had received a custom-made gift bear while in the hospital … and I was saddened to see that the bear’s stitching was loose and in a few areas already coming apart, shedding bean-bag beans all over the chair! Shame on that seamstress for giving such a substandard product. Of course I took the bear home for a proper re-stuffing and repair.
It was during that time I decided to offer my custom bears to provide a high-quality alternative to those others. The specifications for the bears are below:
Bears sit 12″ tall, just under 9″ wide & 8″ deep, at the base
Bears are lined with a tightly woven cotton fabric ( Because of this, most any type of fabric can be used to create your teddy)
Bears are sewn with a high grade 100% cotton thread
Standard bears have plastic craft eyes and a felt nose. (Other options are available upon request.)
Stuffed with quality Poly-Fil (Made in USA)
100% Recycled Polyester
Washable & Hypoallergenic
Superior resiliency, smooth consistency
Care: Most are Machine washable on gentle cycle with warm water, Air dry or tumble dry on air or low heat setting (This may vary, if fabric used to create bear is a dry clean only.)
Average cost for your custom-sewn Teddy Bear is $200 (Crown Royal: $250) Hand Embroidery is available for an additional fee
