Elf ------ love nature (19.5cm)

I'm so delighted that my bear (Elf ----- love nature) is one of the finalists for the People's Choice Awards at the Sydney Teddy Bear Fair 2010 (Category 4 : Dressed/Character or Fantasy Bears).

Elf lives in a forest full of apple trees and likes to play with ladybugs. He enjoys sitting under the trees and day dreaming. That's why I made drowsy eyes and a wobbling head for him : )

For clothing, a layer of linen is added upon felt to create a primitive look, in addition to a leather string with beads tied around his waist.

If you like him, please give him a vote at :
