"Dim Sum" bears and commissioned orders

Green Tea (4.25") and Red Bean (3.5"), sending love and bear hugs
Please meet Green Tea and Red Bean, my "dim sum" bear series. Both are made from white alpaca, green and red mohair. I think the mini bamboo steamers are really cute for these little fellows. Hope they bring you smiles : ) 
For adoption details:

Judy and HY (about 6"), altered from my previous creations
And this set of bear couple is altered from " The B Trio" to become a pair of wedding bears as requested. For the groom, a ribbon bow and three red beads are added to the body. While for the bride, beautiful laces are used to make the wedding gown and veil. Besides, their names and wedding date are embroidered on foot pads to commemorate the Happy Day (^O^)

A.W. (4"), a commissioned bear made from Schulte silk mohair
I'd also like to introduce A.W., this sweet little bear wears a light blue lace tutu and a yellow striped scarf, with initials embroidered on foot pads. I enjoy making such small sized bear that can be held in hand. Mostly, I make bears from mini (3") to medium (10") sizes, but I've just got a commissioned order of a 15 inches bear, a change for me. I placed an order of fabric for making it, can't wait to receive the fabric and start sewing!
