Daisy, Daisy .......

Cue for a song??!! But don't worry; I won't LOL

Here’s my latest young lady bear! Her name is Daisy. She is a commission from my very lurverly cousin Gwyneth who wants her for a little girl called ……………. yes you’ve guessed it, Daisy! I was left entirely to my own devises in the making of Daisy, so I hope Gwyneth likes her, although I have already told her that it’s fine if this is not what she wants. I didn’t think it was right to make one of my quirky style bears, as Daisy is a young/little girl (not sure actually of her age) who would no doubt prefer 'cute'. I did make a dress for her (which took me about 4 hours believe it or not!), but then I didn’t like it on her and decided ‘less is more’ in order that the lovely mohair fabric can be seen.

Daisy is approximately 9½ inches tall and made from a very pale lemon Ratinee mohair (I think the ‘Ratinee’ means curly) – I hope the colour shows clearly on your screens. The colour is actually described as ‘Banana Whip’, but I suppose it could appear as a cream kind of colour. She has black glass eyes and is 5-way jointed with matching pale lemon cotton velvet for her paw pads, with just a touch of ‘distressing’ around the edges. Daisy has lemon and peach ribbons around her head and a daisy necklace (also made by me) and she’s carrying a bouquet of paper daisy flowers.

As usual, any comments are welcome!
