Could not resist uploading these last two photos of little Alfie.

Alfie is nothing but a hound dog!  His coat is a mix  Sassy longpile velvet  and rough suede in honey and rufus tones. 

He is 3 inches tall standing on his hind paws but a mere 4cms high when standing on all fours.  His tiny size enables him to fit easily in the palm of a hand, or be popped into one's pocket.  He likes to accompany his owner everywhere and is well behaved.

His muzzle is square from extensive needle and scissor sculpting with a hand shaded and embroidered lower lip.

Suede and velvet eye-sockets were created to house his German glass black eyes.  His nose is black resin.

HIs hind paw pads have been realistically needle-sculpted ,then  embroidered with DMC cotton thread.

Alfie has a wobble-jointed head allowing him to adopt multiple head positions. His limbs are string jointed. His forelimbs have wire armature to assist in movement and posing. 

Nobody knows who his father was.... but we suspect it was a terrier of sorts, judging by the shape of his adorable ears.

He wears a furry collar embroided with antique metallic thread and sporting two tinkly brass bells.

Alfie is stuffed very firmly with polyfibre filling...and a whole lot of love too!
Due to the small parts he contains he is not intended for children or pets.

Easter Bunnies

 Busy Easter Bunnies

Easter Bunnies all over the world are very busy tonight.  So many eggs to hide for so many children.  They better hurry! 

Rosie, Posie and Wally hopping around madly


Rosie and Posie are made from two different patterns I have been experimenting with.  Both are made from longpile velvet in a pastel lilac shade, and white faux fur.

Posie is only 5,5 cms high. Her head is cotterpin jointed and her forelimbs are sting jointed.  She has long whiskers and furry fuzzy cheeks.

It seems like Wally is quite taken with her and not too keen on working!

Rosie is taller at 7 cms  and is 5 ways jointed.  She sits, runs and hops, and can turn her head in all directions. Her cheeks have been scissor sculpted.  Like Posie she has a seriously fluffy white tail.

Time for a group photo

 The bunnies and I would like to wish all our friends a very Happy Easter

Meet Riley..... the newest addition to the 'Eddybare' family.  I am not sure what breed he could possibly be, certainly not one recognised by any Kennel club.  So a street dog he is ... a fine, hairy one!

Riley shows his tiny size

Riley stands 7cms high.  He is made from  black Mohair and white Imported Schulte synthetic.  His inner ears are grey Ultrasuede. 
His tiny paw pads are fashioned from black leather.

inner ears of grey Ultrasuede

Warm, soulful, dark- brown eyes light up his mischievous face and his wet, black resin nose gives him a healthy appearance.

Internal wire armature gives Riley a good stance. He has unjointed limbs and a wobble head allowing it to rotate, swivel and be posed in most directions.  His ears are long and floppy; and unwired, but can still be moved slightly to allow for posing.

Riley has a long, scraggly, waggly tail.  One need only to glance at his tail to see what mood he's in.  There is a light wire armature within so he can be posed with his tail up or down. A tiny Eddybare label is sewn in under his tail, so as not to be too noticeable, but at the same time proving he is an original!

 Riley wears his brown leather collar with a little brass bell attached .

You may think Riley doesn't seem to have a mouth, but he does!  It's hand embroidered and hidden under his scruffy fur.  

Riley is the only the  second type of dog made by Eddybare.  My Jack Russells can be seen in this past blog entry  http://eddybare.blogspot.com/search/label/jack%20russell%20terrier.

Hope you like him. Any comments or orders are welcome as usual.
