MIniature "White Chocolate" teddy bear
I love to make jointed teddy bears. I had some chocolate ephemera and wanted to use some of it for a chocolate bear, but a brown bear just didn't seem to go with the shabby cottage theme that I'm doing right now, so I thought "white chocolate!" He has a dark chocolate ruffle around his neck, and his paw pads are really cute! I used little ovals taken from an old ad that I got from the graphics fairy and reprinted them so that they fit perfectly on his paws and feet. He comes in a darling altered box that I made for him. You can see most of it in the photo. Each side of the box is different.
I used dual strength thread to joint this bear so it should last for years to come.
