Teddy - Fidas
Today i would like to show you Fidas
He is 30 cm - 12 inches - tall, a OOAK (One Of A Kind) Collectors Teddy.
The photographs simply do not give this stunning teddy the justice he deserves.
He is made of the finest silken faux fur, a pale grey with darker grey base.
His large golden German glass eyes gaze slightly sleepy from his hand-felted face.
The dry felting process uses a single needle to manipulate wool roving into shape, making his features truly one of a kind, and unique.
His paws are also needle felted and heavily thread sculpted from mohair wool.
After finishing the long felting process his face and his paws are very carefully shaded with the best oil paints. This again takes many hours.
He has extensive pose ability, as he has bolt jointed limbs. But he doesn't mind which way he sits or stands as long as he fills your heart with pride.
Fidas was made in a smoke- and pet free environment.
His new family will receive him in his own pretty box with a special birth certificate showing his date of creation and signed by the maker.
