Archie is made entirely by me from a beautifully soft Steiff Schulte viscose fabric, which is lovely caramel kind of colour. He is 5-way cotter jointed, with a wobble neck joint and is filled as usual with firm fibre-fill and steel shot for a good bit of weight. I’ve then aged him around the edges with oil pastels and added faux mending stitches here and there to add to the vintage look. He has black glass eyes and a prim stitched nose. I’ve made Archie a pair of prim style dungarees, made from homespun fabric, with a red hankie poking out of one of the pockets and a camera charm stitched on the other pocket – he also has 2 small bells around his neck.

From top to toe, Archie measures 10 inches (approx 25cms): sitting height he is 8 inches (approx. 19cms).

On his back you can see a fabric ‘Handmade at Bilberry Lane’ label and his unique antique style metal ‘BL’ pin.

Archie can be purchased for £50, plus shipping and packing:

UK - £8 Special Delivery
Europe - £15, tracked and signed for
Worldwide - £20, tracked and signed

EDIT - 17 July 2017: I'm happy to say that Archie has been adopted and is now happy in his new home!

Thanks for looking
