I love the characters from Alice in Wonderland, especially The Mad Hatter.
One day I started wondering what if I could design a teddy bear Mad Hatter? Voila!
The Bear in the Hatter
14 inches tall, 18 inches at the tip top of the hat, fully jointed made from 2 Schulte mohair colors - black and string. The face is inset and had expressive artistic eyes of authentic shoe buttons and an embroidered nose.
Original design hat Add the embellishments or favorites you find: delightful fairytale enameled charm reads "Once Upon a Time." A hand inked note tucked into the crown reads "In this Style 10/6." A gorgeous brown and light blue ribbon circles the brim.
AND THE TAIL
A button-on tail completes this delightful original bear.

My name is Ginger, and I began sketching and designing fashion styles when I was 5 years old, just like my mother and grandmother. Stick pins and lovely tan tissue paper were my favorite play items as a little brown haired girl, and still are today!
Some ladies dream of Prince Charming, but I dream of a dressmaker form on a stand.
From haute couture to pattern design, I truly love dressmaking and bearmaking.
