Antique Vintage Little Scraps Bear " Louie " Ooak Little Scraps Bear For Sale

Antique Vintage Little Scraps Bear

I love antique bears. My Husband and I have been collecting Antique teddy bears for some time. Collecting them then led to learning how to restore them. An ever growing hug and a house literally bulging with bears then led to us selling them.

Along our journey of searching for teds we have come across a large number of very poor old souls, or more specifically, bits and pieces of antique and vintage bears and soft toys that are absolutely beyond repair. I must stress I love a worn, well loved bear and would never, ever harm one. All scraps used, are scraps.

My "keep everything just in case" nature has made me save every scrap we have found, never knowing when a piece of material or stuffing may come in handy to restore another poor bear in need.

Around six months ago, whilst rummaging around in my scrap trunk, I suddenly had the idea that it may be fun to make a little bear out of the scraps, a kind of recycled bear if you like!

So, in my spare time I went about creating the first one, and I have been hooked ever since.

The way in which I go about making them is very relaxed, I never really have a grand plan for what they are going to look like, I like their little characters to come alive in my hands. This way, although every one I make is certainly a member of the Little Scraps family, they are all individual and have their own personalities.

All patterns used to make them are hand drawn by me. They are entirely hand stitched and are filled with authentic antique stuffing that is also reused. Scrap materials used to make them may be bare and/or age worn, but have been treated making Little Scraps bears safe to mix with your other bears.

Little Louie is a sweet, tufty little scrap made from age worn blue mohair scraps. I used some worn blue velveteen for the inside of his ears and I also gave him some paw pads! He measures 5 inches long and is filled with antique wood wool, with a mixture of kapok and wood wool in his head. He is five way jointed and has antique boot button eyes.

Although he was pictured standing in one of his photographs, this took some very careful balancing and he is much happier sitting down. Little Louie will come wearing his jingly chiffon ribbon and will arrive to you with a signed and dated hang tag.

They are made with love and for fun. I get so much pleasure from making them. They are sweet characters with a home made Little Scraps feel, wanting to be reloved. I hope that there may be a little space in your hug for a Little Scraps Bear.

Please note.....

Little Scraps Bears are collectors bears and are not suitable for children.

I have listed them in both Antique and Artist bear categories allowing all bear collectors to take a peek.

I have quoted one price for international postage, but will of course refund the difference if the price works out as less after your bear has been posted.
