Hello and welcome, please meet Tiny Tom my first old and shabby primitive style teddy bear. He is oh so very old looking and he has a nice old antique, frumpy feel. He is wonderfully altered. I just adore this little one and I hope you like him too.
Tiny Toms set flaunts of exceptional coloring variations: the tan color viscose, the creams of his flag, paper hat and navy collar, the duck-egg blue of his marine pullover, the American prim flag in faded old red and navy blue. His majestic chestnut hand tinted shading will make him a stand-out addition to any teddy bear collection.
Tiny Tom wears a wonderful sailor style outfit that I handknitted and altered with handtinted accents. He wears a little paper hat made of vintage paper and I stamped the graphics "LOVEBOAT". It can be removed or changed.
Wrapped and pinned to his arm is a wire flag embellishment that I made from cream cotton on which I embroidered Tiny Toms' name. On the other side I embroidered 2012 as a reminder of the year in which this set has been created.
I painted the wooden sailing boat and paddles in matching colors: cream and duck-egg blue. Then I altered and distressed the boat to give it an old look. I made a little torn and rumpled American prim flag which I have I attatched to "the stern" with rusty wire.
Not only does Tiny Tom look cuddly, he is a very cuddly tiny teddy bear. He is the size of 14 cm - 5.5. inches and small enough to fit in my hand. He is weighted with steel pellets and huggable clouds of sheep wool filling. He is also very poseable because he is extremely loose-jointed. This makes him so charming and adorable.
