Elsie is a sweet and dinky, one of a kind, artist bear in beautiful printed fabric and hand dyed mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears

Elsie stands just 6 inches (15 cm) tall and is 4.5 inches (11 cm) sitting.

Elsie is a little bear full of fun and colour, she might be one of our smaller bears but she is brimming over with personality, a sweet and very happy bear who will go anywhere with you and put a smile on your face.

Elsie is mostly made from a beautiful, cotton fabric that is printed with a stylised version of Monet's garden in Giverny, you can see water lilies and the dappled light sparkling on the water if you look closely, this is backed with wool felt to make it stronger and a little stiffer. Her face is a medium length wispy mohair that is mainly a pale beige but with a little scrutiny you will notice some very pale peach and pink, the same mohair was used for the backs of her ears this time showing stronger reds and oranges and a purple backcloth. Her tummy is a medium length distressed mohair hand dyed in muted greens, olive, red and terracotta, which tones in very well with her main fabric. Elsie has coordinating, hand dyed, velvet paw pads.

Elsie has beautiful, gently sparkling hand painted eyes with eyelids, an intricately embroidered nose sewn from individual threads to match her colouring and a gorgeous smile, she's a very, very happy bear. Elsie is stuffed with polyester stuffing and glass beads, these giving her a little extra weight and posability.

Elsie is a pocket sized bundle of fun and happiness, a bear of beautiful colouring and the sweetest personality, she's very easy to get along with and loves to be taken out to meet people, she's a sociable little bear. We hope you like her.

We will enclose photos with Elsie and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.

As with all our bears Elsie is not a toy, she is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
