Here he is! My first ever BIRD creation... "A. Foolnz", a totally new and original design! (click pics to see him big) His name is an anagram of the famous bear "Alfonzo".. named as such to celebrate Alfonzo's Centenary for Teddy Bears of Witney 2008 catalog. A. Foolnz is a close genetic relative (or mutation) of my *fattie bears (*as sweetly described by Pengy collectors).. AKA my "Buddha Bears".

He is indeed a bit on the heavy side for a winged creature, with a tendency to make a tree branch sag... but we won't hold it against him. Made of thick wavy Schulte hand-dyed mohair, handpainted glass eyes, hand-dyed pink merino felt wool beak, jointed wings, polyfil with encased steel BB's for a nice weight.

LE of only 5, available exclusively through Witney catalog and/ or their web site.


Panda Reverso- Weird Wonderful Double Reversible Panda!

Trick or Treat? Here is a special one of a kind, original design- Panda Reverso! 3 day auction on eBay ends Oct 14th Sunday.
Above you can see the 'reverse' side reflected in a mirror.

This chubby fella measures 6" to tops of ears and about 6" wide. Made of 4 kinds of hand dyed Schulte mohair, 2 sets of handpainted glass eyes, 8 tiny jointed limbs (heads are unjointed), 2 waxed thread noses, "shared" pair of ears, and of course a shared "back"! Filled with polyfil and encased steel BB's for weight. They are like trick or treat, yin and yang, twin spirits, double personalities (or double trouble, LOL!)... 2 bears in one!

Good luck if you decide to bid on this unique fella & hope he warms your heart! :o)
